Responsive website helps to access website to all the platforms irrespectively of the tablets, Smartphone, iPhones, desktops, etc. For building up of a responsive website, the designers have to be skillful enough.
Besides the demand of accessing website from the desktops and laptop, it is increasing at an astronomical pace. However, all the websites are not updated and optimized with the website design by applying modern web technology. The screen of mobile devices is constrained with size and resolution. Different website appears in the different ways and sometimes the page come out broken. These issues can be corrected by the design optimization process of responsive web design. This type of design optimization adapts the web page with the screen resolution of the device. This determines the way on which the contents of the page plaid out on the device screen.
The application of the design technology can adapt the screen size of across all devices, namely the common devices and smart phones along with the wide TV screens, game consoles, and even for wearables. Whenever the size of the screen fluctuates, the image of the website or application covers the entire page of the device. When your business optimization is highly depended on the website accessing, it is important to adapt your website to any screen size from today onwards to get better achievement from it.
So, what is responsive web design? This is originally a type of optimized website that responds according to the need of the users and their device compatibility. The lay out of the site is changeable to fit for the screen of the device. As for example, when the desktop will show contents to a full view of 5 rows, the tablet will show it with 3 rows (horizontally) and the smart phone will show it with 4 rows (vertically). Here is the essence of responsive website design.
Being a designer, you have to follow some of the processes that allow to access a website according to the screen size of the device.
Set the view port first:
To ensure the best experience of the image and its compatible size the view port should be adjusted. Using the Meta view port value adjusting it “width=device-width”, the designer adjust the screen resolution to the concept. This renders to adjust the mobile device to large screen of a desktop.
Size content viewport:
Most of the cases, the mobile and tablet users access websites by scrolling vertically and not horizontally. Sometimes, to achieve better accessing optimization, and better viewer experience, the users are forced to scroll horizontally. This section is optimized by size content view port optimization.
By using a mobile site Meta viewport tag, the horizontal view can be optimized. When image size or page size does not match with the size of the view port, the designers need to adjust the image that shows in the view port so that it should not be scrolled horizontally that creates a harsh impact on the users.
Apply CSS media queries for responsiveness:
This is a simple filter that can be useful to CSS style. This tool helps to change styles, characteristics rendering the contents, display type, height, width, orientation and resolution.
The designers should select the breakpoint of an image so that the user gets a prominent concept and does not feel annoyance for shortage of content view. You also can select this point logically.
Thus the website becomes responsive that helps to increase the business of all types and spread the site to all the handheld devices.
