the user always comes first
From mobile browsers to netbooks and tablets, users are visiting your sites from an increasing array of devices.
As designers, we must design for all. When we start to design we cannot think first about the design itself; our priority must be the user. What kind of person will be using it, in what place and situation and why?
Creating a website version for each resolution and new device would be impossible or at least impractical. And we can’t suffer the consequences of losing visitors from one device just so we can gain visitors from another.
Responsive Web design (RWD) is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. This allows us to create designs that anticipate and respond to users’ needs, delivering a quality experience no matter how large (or small) their display.
This site has been made using CSS3 media queries.
Drag the size of your browser window, view it on your tablet or your phone and you’ll see that our content is presented in a manner that adapts to your device. Nice.
