T ake a guess! Responsive web design is exactly what it sounds like. The layout of the web page responds to the screen size of your users. Back in the day, in Barbados, there weren’t many screens to choose from and what were available would have been expensive, e.g there weren’t many mobile and tablet devices. Today, we have big screen monitors, small screen monitors, various tablet size screens and various mobile size screens that are more affordable.
I know not everyone would think that designing and developing a website is a hard task but it is! You have to ensure that you know what size screen most of your target market is using. Normally, you would cross your fingers and hope that the website design would look just as fantastic on all screens including mobile screens. Oh what a hassle! With responsive designs, this make the task easier. The website design would easily adjust according to the size of the screen. Wuhloss! Finally!
