Responsive Web Design (RWD) / Mobile Web Design

The advent of smartphones/tablet pc’s and availability faster data networks has taken the mobile internet space to a much higher level.

While data speed in mobile network has increased dramatically, the more complex challenge in website design is its compatibility with varied screen sizes ranging from 2.5inches to 25inches(and more). Phones became smaller and smaller in the last decade, but now thanks to touch revolution, now phones are getting bigger along with their screens. Today, there are no standard display sizes and optimizing your website for particular size is futile. That’s why we believe in Responsive Web Design.

Principle of Responsive Web Design

RWD helps your website adapts its layout and elements automatically based on the screen size, browser type etc.

A site designed with RWD uses CSS3 media queries, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment—along with fluid proportion-based grids and flexible images:

  • 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
  • The fluid grid concept calls for page element sizing to be in relative units like percentages or EMs, rather than absolute units like points (which are typically for print media), inches, centimeters, etc. Note that in CSS, pixels are considered relative units; however, they are not relative to the size of the font (as with EMs and percentages)
