Responsive Website Designing – Adapt To Different Devices

How would you like to see a webpage shrunk into something unintelligible as you open it on your mobile device? Unprofessional, isn’t it? Well, RWD, the abbreviated form of Responsive Website Designing is such a strategic approach that makes the WebPages easily adaptable according to the devices. Be it a large monitor of PC or a small laptop, a Smartphone or a tablet – the RWD maintains one motto i.e. Content is like water; wherever you put it, it adapts to the shape of it. One of the major extensions of this approach is viewer proximity and for that, necessary attention is given to good content, catchy design and smooth performance.

So What Responsive Web Designing Is ?

With flexibility being the main approach, the perfect blend of images, media queries and grids make the RWD stand out with strong strategy, responsive design and development. With zero complexity, these websites can adapt to any screen size while giving you the liberty of writing, updating or publishing contents from everywhere. The best part of this design is it is not only time efficient but also cost effective.

Layouts Based On Grids

The basic components of any website are Header, Company Logo, Navigation Menu, body, main content and sidebar contents, social links, copyright and footer. Keeping the grid fixed will shrink the page if you view it in smaller screens. The exceeding width within the viewport forces the viewer to scroll horizontally, which can be really irritating.

This problem is solved by using the 960px screen size of the viewport offered by Apple which makes the site zoom in and out automatically according to the size of the device. In order to zoom into some picture or link, all you have to do is to double tap on the screen.

Media And Images

Responsive web designing services also ensure flexibility in displaying the pictures or media. The fluid mix of images, videos, iframes and embeds with fixed width CSSs are created to make the website interactive. The very issue of over-stretching or over-shrinking of images and other media is solved with the max width (100%) property that prevents the image files to grow too tall. Moreover, an HTML window ensures that the images change according to the various window sizes of browsers. While keeping the width 100%, the height is defined as “auto” that keeps the height-width proportion compact within the screen size.

Media Queries

Be it an older version of Internet Explorer like IE6 or the latest version of Chrome, according to the width of browser, the media queries are integrated to apply various CSS customization rules for the pages displayed in different device. Media queries can be added as many as the client needs. For smooth interface, media queries are also hidden for smaller devices.

Suppose, the website is designed with columns and rows which do not go well when checked on a mobile device. By adding a Breakpoint, the responsive website development helps proper arrangement of contents so that the tabs on and below the breakpoint act differently. While the columns on desktop have different width, those on mobile device have 100% for al so that they are fit to screen. In such cases, designing is done for mobile and then for desktop and other devices.

As creating breakpoints for different devices is practically impossible, regarding the fact that there are various sizes of devices nowadays, the breakpoints can be used for five target groups of devices i.e.

  • Extra small phones (600px and below)
  • Large phones and portrait tablets (600px and above)
  • Landscape tablets (768px and above)
  • Desktops, Laptops (992px and above)
  • Extra large desktops and laptops (1200px and above)

After creating a strategy, a user-friendly design is done before starting the complex process of Front-end development so that the pages convey the same message on all devices. Being time and cost effective, RWD is gradually taking over the web market.
