Using Responsive Design

With the endless new resolutions and mobile devices coming out, the Web design and development industry is quickly getting out of control. In most cases, it would be impossible or at least impractical to create a different version of a website for every resolution or device. Is it worthwhile to lose visitors from one device to gain visitors from another just because we lose visitors from one device? Do we have any other options?

Responsive Web Design: What Is It?

As part of the design and development process, a website developer/business owner takes the visitor’s behavior and environment into consideration.

CSS media queries and flexible grid layouts are just a few of the tools used by this practice. Websites should automatically adjust resolution, image size, and scripting capabilities when users switch from laptop to iPad. Using a VPN for iOS on an iPad, for example, may require consideration of the user’s device settings; e.g., the website should not deprive the user of access to the page. It should, therefore, be equipped with the ability to respond to the user’s preferences. In this scenario, each new gadget on the market would go through the same design and development phases instead of having to go through separate stages.

The Technicalities of Responsive Design

Three principles underlie responsive design:

Essentially, you set the position of the pixels and the scale in which they grow and shrink. Your design base should be built with a CSS grid system and generator (most are free). In percentage terms, divide the size of the target by the context. In other words, it’s the maximum width of the design feature divided by the maximum width of the user’s browser. You will have one design that expands or shrinks depending on a user’s screen size when you apply these percentages to the CSS script’s required properties.

It’s not natural for images to be fluid, unlike text. That means they default to the same settings and size no matter which device they are displayed on. It’s possible for images to not adapt and thus appear out of proportion to other elements on different devices, which can result in an inconsistent design. The following CSS command is needed: IMG [max-width:]

Based on the design’s dimensions, these filters determine which devices it appears on. They let you probe the screen size being seen by users. That changes the site’s layout according to the size of the screen. Additionally, you can use CSS to include these styles. Therefore, your design will display differently based on the user’s screen size, height, orientation, etc. You can specify the width and height of your design.

A wide range of tools is available, including Bootstrap, H5P, Gomo, and Elucidat.
