Responsive website

Responsive website

Responsive web design, abbreviated with the acronym RWD, is about creating a graphic layout intended for the web but that is flexible. Until 2010, the layout of websites was mostly established with fixed proportions at 960-980 pixels. All this changed on May 25, 2010, when Ethan Marcotte published the article on “Responsive web design”. Ethan asked himself this question because the market had recently known the iPhone and iPad with which it was possible to access the web. These two new devices designed by Steve Jobs, have a significantly reduced format compared to a computer or pc, so the need arose to make flexible web pages based on their container. The main feature of when creating a responsive website is to create a fluid layout grid that is able to automatically adapt to resolution and format.

Responsive web design

When it comes to creating a responsive website, the most important thing is to set priorities. It’s always better to check and establish them with the customer! The priorities are:

– Images and slide shows
– Logo
– Navigation menu
– Text

It is necessary to choose the priorities of the proportions, if for example a customer wants to give more importance to the logo, in different environments will always keep a larger format than the image or slide show.
