Your website needs to go

Your website needs to go… everywhere…on the desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone. Do you have a website? If so, when was the last time you viewed it on your phone or iPad? How did it look and how easy was it to use? Consider that in the 4th quarter of 2019 over 52% of websites were viewed on a mobile device1.

Modern websites need to display well on multiple devices. When designing a web page, the desktop monitor offers a large landscape to work with, but that web page needs to be able to scale all the way down to the smallest smart phone screen.

In the early days of internet accessible mobile phones, web designers had to develop a "mobile only" version of their website. So instead of maintaining just one site, webmasters had to work double duty. I never did this. I knew something better was around the corner. And that "something better" became Responsive Web Design. "Responsive" basically means a website responds to different screen sizes, automatically changing the site's layout to best fit the display.

In 2017, I made Responsive Web Design my standard website design process. If I designed a website for you prior to 2017, I urge you to get in touch so that we can discuss converting your site to a responsive design. This may even be a good opportunity to do some website "housekeeping."
