Responsive Web Development & Design

Albury Web Design & Development, NSW, AustraliaIn January 2019, there was a turning point in that for the first time with more people using smart devices (phones & tablets) than desktop computers (including laptops) to access the internet. (Source: Stats Counter). As of October 2019, that figure stands at 48.94% for desktops.

A website needs to be 'responsive' to the device it is viewed on. Remember the old days when looking at a website on your phone, and you have to zoom in just to read it?

It was annoying and not user-friendly. Google thought so too, and in 2014, tweaked its algorithm to put more emphasis on ''mobile-friendly'' websites, and as such, the Responsive Web Design era began.

In short, a responsive website changes the layout to offer an experience based on the device being used, especially ideal for mobile viewing.

A mobile responsive website includes design elements such as:

  • Readable text without requiring zoom
  • Adequate space for tap targets
  • Website narrower than the device
  • Adaptive menu system
  • Optimized visuals
  • Mobile SEO

The next stage in this development is AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) and PRW (Progressive Web Apps) - more on that soon!

With extensive web design & development experience gained across a wide variety of website types, Red Dust Snow provides affordable web design and development services to clients across eastern Australia covering small businesses, online e-commerce shops, and large regional tourism organisations.

Joomla also has the edge over Wordpress in terms of components (things that add functionality to the website like e-commerce, bookings, galleries, mapping, etc.)

The Joomla Extention Directory lists all available add-ons that can enhance your website.

These applications should complement each other and be implemented with design and functionality in mind; it is always about continuity.
