Responsive Web Design: Future-Friendly Experiences
03.The Responsive Design Process
Responsive web design requires innovation, but patterns have emerged…
Responsive Web Design Layout Patterns
Columns, images, text, and more are scaled down as the screen gets smaller.
Elements remain the same size, but columns are stacked as the screen gets smaller.
The site uses different page layouts for large, medium, and small screens.
Content is hidden until the user asks for it. This technique is showing up in mobile apps.
Note: These patterns and examples are documented by Luke Wroblewski in his article “Multi-Device Layout Patterns.” Please review his article for more information about each pattern and the pros/cons for them.
Which Pattern Is Right For Your Site?
Each site is unique, so yours may not fit neatly into a pattern. We have a smart, dedicated team at IQ Agency that can help.
Content strategists review your current content and help you think about future content. Then they inventory what you have and what you’ll have eventually, so you know what to design for.
Experience architects help you figure out what features and functions you want the site to have and then prioritize those with your content. They can also help you (along with the rest of the team) determine what size points to use (i.e., the screen sizes you already know you must design for).
Designers create a visual language for your site and determine the best way to scale the content, features, and functions for each screen size.
Developers build the site. They follow coding standards to ensure your site works across as many devices as possible and scales nicely from one screen size to the next.
