Responsive Design

What is Responsive Design?

Websites using responsive design automatically make allowances for the changing screen resolution and size used to view a Website. The rapid growth of Smartphones and tablet users dictates that your Website be accessible from all media types. Responsive design accomplishes this effortlessly. — This Website uses responsive design. You can test this by changing the size of your Web browser to see the sections move below one another for continuously viewing. No more scrolling from side to side to view the complete screen.

Reasons why your Website should be Responsive.

  1. 4 out of 5 customers use mobile phones to shop. 70% of mobile searches result in action within 1 hour.
  2. Todays' clients are shopping from their mobile devises.
  3. Make sure all your visitors have access to the same information and features no matter what screen size they are using.
  4. Google has taken a strong stance on mobile SEO, Google announced that there will be demotions if your site is not mobile friendly.

Note: The images are not to scale. They are only to display how the information is sized to fit the various screen sizes and orentation.

When the Web browsers detects the user is viewing the Website from a Smartphone or tablet it automatically stacks the sections and reduces the image size to fit the device screen size. It accounts for both landscape and portrait views. Keeping this concept in mind the Web designer should create each Web page so that the flow of content is consistent on all screen sizes. What looks good on a desktop may not flow in the same pattern on a Smartphone or a Tablet.

Single-Page Websites

Single-Page Websites are good for small informational Websites.They work will in the following examples:

  • A brochure site for an artist, an author, small business, or a typical restaurant.
  • When there isn't a tremendous amount of content
  • When all the content is closely related
  • A particular design approach simply works best on a single page.

The Single-Page Website is trendy and can be very engaging—especially when combined with smooth scrolling. While smooth scrolling is very engaging, this page can also be scrolled by using your mouse wheel, the default browser scrollbars, or your keyboard's arrow keys.

Static Web Design

Static Web pages are very commonly used for informational Websites. They present the same information to all viewers. Static Websites pass information from the server through the Internet to the viewer's screen. There is no interatcion between the viewer and the Web server. — Think of them as news papers or magazines.

Dynamic Web Design

A dynamic Website has page content that varies based upon the parameters provided by the user or a computer program. Examples of dynamic content are shopping carts, club members sites, blogs, keyosk/ATM machines, forms and other information gathering utilities. The flow of information back and forth between the user and the server is what makes the content dynamic. The user requests an item —> the server asks for details —> the user gives spcifics —> the sever researches a database based upon the users reply; processes the information and then presents the user with and answer. The content can be different for each user.

Some examples of dynamic Website are shown below:
