With 1.2 billion people
accessing the web on mobile devices, it’s important for designers and programmers to accommodate their viewers and consider a responsive website layout.The use of technologies such as smartphones and tablets is on the rise.The stationary feeling of sitting at a computer to surf the internet is now replaced by the freedom of a portable device.
Website designers are taking this idea of browsing on the go and catering to it. Designers and programmers are using a responsive website layout that can adapt to any device on which it is displayed. If viewed on a computer, the layout may include a set of complex columns and images. As the device gets smaller, the format becomes simpler and easier to navigate. The purpose is to allow users to have the same experience on a website no matter what device they are viewing it on.
Food Sense is a great example of a website using this type of layout to appeal to viewers across multiple devices. What’s great about Food Sense is that their website is aesthetically pleasing, and entirely functional no matter where it is viewed. The images and text work well not only on a large screen, but are also readable on a much smaller screen such as an Android or an iPhone.
And really, a well designed website is just delicious.
I’m Joe. I’m currently finishing up my degree in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Connecticut. I’ve been programming, fixing computers, and hacking things since I was 12. There’s never a dull moment at Julia Balfour, LLC, and I’m sure this blog will depict that quite well. Stay tuned for samples of awesome techy/geeky stuff from me, I try to stay on the cutting edge.
