How is responsive web design changing the industry?

Most web designers know what responsive design is. But most websites don’t have it—and few people ask for it by name. Clients do know they want a website that works on any device–phone, tablet, desktop. They also want better search engine optimization. That’s what responsive design gives them.

Is responsive design just another trend?

Mobile is increasingly becoming a very big deal for developers. Smartphone internet access is actually outpacing desktops. Responsive design is much more than just a trend. It’s essential for your business. It’s crucial to clients that their sites be available to view on a variety of devices. Besides giving clients better SEO and customer engagement, responsive websites also save money on development and maintenance. Rather than paying for a separate mobile site, responsive design makes it all-inclusive. Updates are easier because you’re updating one site, not two. We expect responsive design to continue to play a major role in our client projects.

What’s in it for the web designer?

The big advantage as a developer and content manager is there’s only one theme to worry about. You don’t have a separate mobile site or theme. It’s all one, consistent piece of code. You’re using the same data in different sizes, but it’s all in one place. You don’t have to do the same thing twice.

When should you ask for responsive design–or a site that works on all devices?

Most of our clients get responsive design when they get a new website. We’re getting a lot of people who are either on another CMS such as Jooomla or moving on to a responsive version. You might as well refresh the design at the same time.

What’s stopping everyone in Leyland with a website from having a responsive website right now?

A common misunderstanding about responsive design is you have to build it from scratch. Actually, you don’t. Not always, you can always modify the existing design.
