Responsive design is the practice of making sure your website is easy to use no matter what size device you are using
Designing websites with mobile phones and tablets in mind will result in a fully responsive design
Mobile phones now account for over 50% of internet traffic, if your website is not fully responsive then a huge proportion of your website users / clients might not be able to use your website properly. In addition to this, Google now appears to penalise websites that are not responsive and mobile friendly on the search engine results page. This means your ranking might not be as high as it could be due to the lack of responsive design.
Depending on the system your current website is built on, we may be able to make your website mobile friendly without moving it. However if you feel your website is dated, then a new website design would be much more beneficial.
Want to get more visitors to your site?
Here are just some of the benefits of responsive design:
Increased engagement – people spend longer on your website
Reduced bounce rate – fewer people leaving your website immediately
More enquiries – people using their phones can now call you from the site
Higher ranking – your Google ranking should increase after adopting responsive design
Better reputation – with a beautiful design, your clients will be impressed
All new websites we build here are responsive, so regardless of your budget you know your website is 100% usable and ready for your customers. Let your customers browse your website on the device that’s convenient for them, rather than hoping they use their PC.
The goal of responsive design is to make things as easy to use as possible for the most possible people. Depending on the website package you choose, there will be between 2 and 5 cut off points – these are the different screen sizes we will code layouts for. These currently range from mobile > phablet > tablet > notebook > laptop / desktop so all bases are covered.
Using a mix of flexible grids and layouts, multi sized images and a clever use of CSS, we ensure that your new website looks great on any device. Most designers opt for a ‘mobile first’ view point, which is something we also believe. By making sure the website is lightweight and quick to load on mobile first, we drastically reduce the amount of wait time website visitors experience. People can be impatient and who likes waiting for things to load? When websites are loaded on larger devices, the larger images and increased amount of information are displayed due to the increased amount of screen space.
