The importance of a responsive website design

Responsive website design is the “big thing” in web design right now. It is a method of design that allows one site to display and function well across a wide range of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets and mobiles. We live in a multi-screen society. Because of this, it’s important for your site to be viewable across as many devices as possible.

Busy lives demand more immediate ways of consuming information. This causes the population to access websites via their phones and tablets more than ever before. Websites are generally handy to access whilst on the move. Responsive design can help you solve many communication issues direct from your website.

It is vital to make the design look just as good, and work just as well, on mobile as it would on desktop. Using a non-responsive or mobile site can be a frustrating experience. It may cause the website to look ‘broken’ and information may not be as easy to find and read. This may divert people away from the website rather than encouraging return visits to the site for a handy ‘centre of information’. Improving the way the website looks on multiple devices, with both large and small screens, will make information more easily accessible and ultimately, your website more effective.

When designing websites Hive always keep responsive design in mind. All websites we build are fully responsive.
