Responsive Web Design
Almost everyone these days wants a mobile version of their website. It's practically essential after all: one design for the BlackBerry, another for the iPhone, the iPad, Tablets, Kindle — and all screen resolutions must be compatible, too. In the next five years, we'll likely need to design for a number of additional inventions as well— think of the new lager size phones, the ‘phablets’ that are inundating the market now.
A Responsive Site changes it's layout to fit the user's screen size and orientation. This eliminates the need to have a separate mobile site. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website will have the technology to automatically respond to the user's preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.
For many websites, creating a website version for each resolution and new device would be impossible, or at least impractical. Using the idea of Responsive Design, I have come up with a simple and cost effective, way to keep up with the endless new resolutions and devices.

- A single website to build, maintain and promote.
- Support for every conceivable screen size, not just the extreme cases of large desktop monitors and small handheld devices.
- Future-friendly, because the layout will reflow based on screen size and not just the size of today's popular devices.
