Introducing Responsive Web Design


Hello, I’m Matthew and I work at Cyber-Duck. Welcome to our brief introduction to responsive
web design, and why it is a must have for your website. Over the last few years the popularity of
mobile devices, like smartphones and tablets, has been growing at an astounding rate, with
more and more people preferring to browse the internet on these devices over traditional
desktop and laptop computers. It is estimated that mobile and tablet browsing
will in fact overtake desktop usage sometime in the next 2 years. Nowadays, mobile devices come in all shapes
and sizes, and it’s almost impossible to keep up with the ever changing market, trying to
tailor a web presence for every handset and screen size. This is where Responsive Web Design comes
in. So how does a responsive website work? Well,
let’s look the Cyber-Duck website. This section on our homepage is a great example of responsive
web design in action. As the screen size decreases, images and copy
scale to fit the browser window. Breakpoints are set so the content is always displayed
in its best form. This makes content easier to read for smartphone and tablet visitors. In conclusion, by having a responsive website;
you have a future friendly way to ensure device compatibility; a single code base, so that
there is no need to build separate websites; the ability to manage your content in just
one place; assurance that your website is optimised for use on any device; and you’ll
also gain a distinct SEO advantage in the eyes of the major search engines. So, if you would like to find out more about
responsive web design, and how to prepare your website for the future, visit us online,
