Multi-Platform Development, Built with Modern Standards

With increasing amounts of web traffic arriving via mobile phones and tablets, it’s important to make sure that your website is built to look and function well, regardless of the size of the screen it’s being viewed on. Responsive web design is all about having the elements of your site shrink and adapt fluidly. Having a fixed-width container just isn’t going to cut it anymore.

Making a website responsive requires additional testing on multiple devices, and a little bit of creativity. As a site shrinks, parts of a site start to “break” or just don’t look good anymore. A 4-column layout just won’t work when a screen is 320 pixels wide.  Navigation items need to be large enough to accomodate touch screens, and may need to hide and be accessed through a navigation icon.

That’s where us web developers put in additional CSS and code that either re-styles elements on the page, re-aligns them, hides them, or sometimes replaces them with something else (such as a slider with an image).

How Can I Help?

I’ve created several responsive websites, and have the experience and attention to detail necessary to get the job done right. You project may fall into one of the following categories:

  • New website builds, with a tablet/mobile size already designed
  • New website builds, where I take charge in using my best judgment as to how a site changes at various sizes, making it fit as closely to the existing design and branding as possible
  • Responsive retro-fitting – When you have an existing site and need to make it responsive, it sometimes can be done as long as your site’s code is up to modern standards and not in tables. It may require a re-build from scratch if it is not.
    • Mobile version of existing site – Rather than having a separate mobile site, I can use media queries to style your site and its content for small screens.
