Responsive design is the combination of Flexible grids, flexible images and media queries. We help take the complexity out of responsive design with details on design, development and strategy.
Responsive web design (RWD) is a web development approach that creates dynamic changes to the appearance of a website, depending on the screen size and orientation of the device being used to view it.
Responsive design allows your website to adapt to the device your users are viewing it on. It provides you with the capability to write once publish everywhere, meaning less work for you.
A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids flexible images, and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the media rule, in the following ways:
- The fluid grid concept calls for page element sizing to be in relative units like percentages, rather than absolute units like pixels or points.
- Flexible images are also sized in relative units, so as to prevent them from displaying outside their containing element.
- Media queries allow the page to use different CSS style rules based on characteristics of the device the site is being displayed on, most commonly the width of the browser.
