What is responsive web design and why it’s important
What is Responsive web design?
Responsive web design is always a sign of a good website. For a website to be considered responsive, it needs to adapt to all platforms, such as desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile. By adapt we mean the website should re-arrange its content to fit perfectly as you switch between platforms.
A responsive website can greatly improve user experience and understanding, which is important. What’s the point of a website if all the content is jumbled up and the user can’t navigate it properly, then you’ve just wasted your money.
Every website we build is responsive, try it out with our website.
