Web Design for All Devices
Web sites have gone from being designed for the old CRT monitors to the wide-screen monitors of today. But when the iPhone was released in 2007 – and the iPad in 2010 – the need arose for websites that were viewable on those mobile devices and similar devices from other manufacturers.
“Responsive websites are not based on static dimensions. Responsive websites conform to the display dimensions of each device they are being viewed on …”
Page Elements Resize and Rearrange
Responsive Web Design (RWD) was the answer to that need. Responsive websites are not based on static dimensions. Responsive websites conform to the display dimensions of each device they are being viewed on – as shown in the image at the top of this page. And, the different elements rearrange to fit – as the screen becomes less wide, the elements go from being side-by-side to stacked vertically. And the navigation is tucked away and accessed by a special icon.

Why You Need It
While you might not be aware of it, more and more of your audience is surfing the website on mobile devices. In fact, by January 2014, more people were using mobile devices online than PCs, according to data from comScore, with a ratio of 55% to 45%, respectively.
We Design Responsive Websites Only
We started designing responsive websites for Long Island in April, 2012, and we haven’t looked back. To do anything other than responsive design would not be doing our clients justice, so all our web designs are now responsive web designs.
