Mobile responsiveness in 2017
What device do you use to access the internet?
Smartphones have overtaken laptops as the most popular device for getting online according to Ofcom. Think about it. Kids sit at desks and access what they need to on their phones. Desktops and laptops are becoming less and less used, not just for the internet but for any type of work. Having a mobile or tablet make it easy to travel while accessing the internet with ease.
As a designer and a consumer it is vital to keep on top of the game when it comes to keeping your website responsive and optimised for all devices. A lot of design agencies out there are building and designing "mobile first" meaning that they'll design a website for the phone before the desktop or laptop. Crazy, I know but it makes sense.
A huge selling point for any designer is that they can build you a website that is responsive and optimised on any device. Here at Upstart Design we pride ourselves on how we make all of our sites fully responsive on all devices.
No enough about us. Compressing certain design elements to fit onto a phone or tablet screen used to be incredibly difficult but with technology these days it has become increasingly easy to do so. Most designers will be able to design directly on top of a certain screen size without the changes affecting how the website looks on other screen sizes. Independently designing on multiple screen sizes at the same size. Cool huh?
Be sensible and get your website looking just as sharp on a mobile phone or tablet as it does on your laptop.
