There is no denying that the future of the web, will be a responsive web. Everyone practically has a smartphone, or a tablet, some sort of mobile device and they use it primarily to access the internet and social networks. So what do we as designers and developers need to do to adapt? We need to build responsive web sites.
What is Responsive Web Design?
Lets see what the wiki says about this!
Responsive Web Design (RWD) essentially indicates that a web site is crafted to use Cascading Style Sheets 3 media queries, an extension of the @media rule, with fluid proportion-based grids, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment, and probably also use flexible images. As a result, users across a broad range of devices and browsers will have access to a single source of content, laid out so as to be easy to read and navigate with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.
Basically it is a response web technique that responds to different browser environments – If you are using a desktop computer you get the full view, if you are on a smartphone using a mobile browser then the website ‘reacts’ or ‘responds’ to this and adapts the width of the page to match the size of the mobile device.
Today we have rounded up some of the best responsive web designs for your inspiration – so you can see what is possible, and spark some ideas of your own so you can use it on your next project! I hope you like these beautiful mobile layouts and get inspired! Enjoy!
