WHAT IS RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN?
Should you even concern yourself with a responsive design? Yes, because a responsive design is a mandatory function that your website needs to have.
A question we often get from clients is, what exactly is responsive design? Responsive design is a technique used to create a website that is adaptable to all devices and screen sizes. It’s a one-design-fits-all solution which means a single design that looks great on all devices and not just a desktop computer. Picture a glass that is filled with water. Regardless if you pour the same amount of water into a mug, bowl or teapot, it’s still the same water. What changes is how it forms to fit the given container that it’s in. This is the same with responsive website design, the design fits according to the container it’s in.
If your website design is not responsive to all devices, then you’re in trouble. More than half of the world’s online traffic is coming from browsing through mobile devices. Whether we like it or not, responsive web design is here to stay and it’s time for all businesses to adapt.
Our web design agency designs all websites to be optimized and responsive for all devices: phones, laptops and all other devices. Is your current website not responsive on all devices? Not to worry, we can convert your current design to be mobile-friendly or just create a new design from square one.

Adapting website visual styles to fit any screen size that ensures your website design will look great on any device that your customers are using. Responsive design uses a singular fluid layout so your customers and Google will be able to find your content with ease.
FAST LOAD SPEEDS
Yes, speed definitely matters. If your website takes longer than a few seconds to load then the visitor will most likely leave your website. Visitors browsing from their mobile devices are even more strict about this as 90% of visitors will leave if your website takes more than 5 seconds to load. This is what can negatively impact your websites Bounce Rate.
CLEAR, CLICKABLE CONTENT
How annoying do you find it when you’re on a website and you have to zoom in on your phone in order to see the text or have to scroll to see the entire page? Mobile first design fixes this problem with user interface elements by increasing the text size, creating more prominent buttons and clickable phone numbers. All of these practices contribute to a better mobile user friendly design.

Since Google is putting more importance on mobile design, they are telling you it’s mandatory to have a responsive website.
