An introduction to responsive website design

A number of years ago websites were a maze of code, fixed sizing and clunky functionality. Along came web-browsable phones and all of a sudden looking at your favourite website meant painstakingly zooming and scrolling to reach your destination. As a solution, you would need to have a purpose built mobile site to cater for mobile users. This proved costly and harder to manage essentially two sites.

Thankfully web design technology has come a long way since then, and with the ever-growing mobile surfing demographic, usability is more important than ever. Enter responsive websites.

What is a responsive website design?
A responsive website is a clever way to structure the web layout into columns that resize and shuffle depending on the screen size. For example if you view a responsive website on your computer a block of content might be a quarter of your screen width, on an iPad it might resize to be half screen width, and on phone become full width. This ensures the content remains on-screen and easy to navigate.

Is a responsive website necessary?
Responsive websites are now industry standard. Google made a change to their algorithms in 2015 that saw non-mobile-friendly websites excluded from appearing in search results for mobile users. If you want your users to get the most out of your website, demand responsive!
