Responsive Web Design
So, “What is Responsive Web Design?” – It is a technique used to make your website clear, easy to navigate and look it’s best, no matter what shape or size of device your visitor is using. Whether this is a smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop the website layout is designed to adjust to fit the screen size. This is achieved using a combination of effective design and coding best practice.
Responsive Design brings a new thought process when it comes to designing the layout of a website. It’s more important than ever that you grab the visitor’s attention with what your website is offering.
