Responsive design ‘de rigeur’ for new sitesJuly 28, 2014
Since late 2012, all new Digital Tsunami online sites have been developed with responsive design.
These responsive sites are accessible to all, irrespective of the platform on which they are viewed. Content presents appropriately on all devices (desktops, laptops, tablets, phablets and smartphones) by adapting to the width of the browser.
The relentless growth of mobile device usage, indicates that a responsive site is a necessity for all corporations and organisations.
Whereas ‘mobile’ sites (using a separate database from the same company’s website) can detect the device and present a single mobile version, and an ‘app’ may be restricted to devices and even operating systems, a responsive site utilises the latest technology to sense the width of the browser and can present a customised solution according to the client’s preferences. The fact that the responsive site delivers desktop and handheld sites generated by a single database on a single CMS, ensures the greatest efficiency in content management.
On a handheld device, the traditional horizontal menu is replaced by a ‘hamburger’ menu icon (three horizontal parallel lines), which opens a vertical tiered menu.
Columns of content in the header, main panel and footer are reorganised ‘on the fly’ subject to browser width. This can be easily demonstrated on a desktop computer, by dragging the right side of the browser window slowly to the left. As width reduces, the number of columns displayed on a responsive site will reduce.
Digital Tsunami has a philosophy of agile development and promotion of innovative, proven solutions.
