What is Responsive Web Design?
Responsive Web Design (or RWD for short) is the latest evolution in web design. It enables users to view your website on their desktop, tablet, and mobile devices without having to pinch and zoom between screens as they did with previous iterations of websites.
RWD also optimizes content for different screen resolutions. So instead of creating three or four different versions of a website (desktop, tablet, phone), one responsive website will work across all screen sizes - making it more efficient and cost-effective. This reduces development time and can increase conversions and revenue because there is only one site to maintain and update moving forward.
What does this mean for you? Well, it's all about offering users the best possible viewing experience on any device they might be using. The objective of responsive web design is to present the user with an interface that automatically adjusts depending on their device settings and requirements, meaning that your content can reach more people than ever before.
Tips for having a good responsive web design
We have got some tips which will help you to get a good responsive web design. Let’s get started:
1. Planning Ahead
Before you start building coding a website, create a style guide that defines all aspects of your design and branding. The more detailed this is, the less likely you are to forget important elements later on. If one page ends up having slight formatting issues as a result of something you forgot to include in the guide, it's better than if every page has those formatting issues because you didn't keep track of consistency throughout the entire design process. You can also make fake screenshots ahead for each device now so when the time comes to develop them they'll be much easier to complete.
2. Pay Attention To Typography
Fonts have always been an integral part of web design since the text is probably going to take up most of the space on your site. While most designers don't make it obvious, the fonts they use play a big part in how good (or bad) their design is.
There are two things you need to consider when picking your font: readability and brand style. The first one is pretty self-explanatory; some fonts are really easy to read while others are not. Make sure that if you're using a hard-to-read font, you'll probably need to use very large fonts and therefore sacrifice the overall design of your site.
