Responsive Conversion

responsiveIntuito Websites can make your website display correctly on all screen sizes.

A regular website will appear really small on smaller screens, making it difficult to read and navigate. If you have ever experienced the feeling of a too-big finger on a too-small screen, you know the frustration a non-responsive website can produce.

Needless to say, you don’t want to put your customers or users through that experience and risk having them give up and browse on to your competitor’s site.

With a responsive website the content and stylistic elements of your website re-flow according to the screen size. This allows for larger text and easier navigation.

To see a responsive website in action, simply re-size your browser window to make it smaller and see what happens. Go ahead, give it a try now. On this site you will notice that as the screen size decreases, the content adjusts accordingly. You don’t loose any usability and you do away with wasted space, an important consideration on smaller screens.

Getting with the times

Because designing for different screen sizes is a relatively new issue, there are still many websites that were designed with a static screen size in mind. The good news is that it is possible to convert your current static website to a responsive one. This is done by editing your stylesheets. In many cases we don’t need to edit your other website files, but even if we do, it will have no effect on how your site displays on large computer screens. All the changes apply only to smaller screen sizes.

Responsive design can actually target any screen size and set style rules that only apply to that size (for example, Iphone horizontal display). But in practice, responsive design attempts as much as possible to make a seamlessly re-sizable website.  That is much more efficient than targeting a myriad number of screen sizes.
