Responsive design

Providing a seamless experience across desktop, tablet, and mobile

Responsive design relates to the adaptability of a website or app in order to respond to the needs of the user and/or device they're using, based on screen size, platform, and orientation - for example on a mobile, users would typically view content in a single-column, whereas a tablet might show the same content, but split across two columns. 

Our front-end developers use a mix of flexible grids, layouts, images, and CSS media queries to ensure a seamless transition across multiple devices; as well as testing for accessibility across varying browsers associated with them.

When approaching your project the design team may ask whether you want the responsive strategy to be desktop of mobile-first, this simply relates to whether the design are initially designed for desktop and scaled or vice-versa. Desktop-first is the more traditional approach however mobile-first is becoming more popular due to the significant rise in mobile and tablet use.
