All things graphic design, website design, illustration and photography with a few thoughts and ideas too.
Not so long ago, if you wanted your website to work well on a mobile you would need a separate mobile website designing and building. Now things have got a lot easier with “responsive web design”. These websites resize for optimum viewing to the size of the device you are using: desktop, tablet or mobile, so you get the best user experience.
Responsive website design changes the way the website looks and the page layout is changed to suit the screen the site is being viewed on. Responsive websites usually work on a grid system and take account of the change from a landscape desktop monitor to a portrait smartphone. Text often become larger on the smaller screen too making it easier top read. Often a responsive website when viewed on a phone will have larger buttons and links to make navigation (using your fingers rather than a mouse) easier.
This site (www.andrewburdettdesign.com) is a responsive wordpress site. If you are viewing it on a desktop, you can see how it would look on a smartphone or ipad/tablet by reducing the size of the window.
