“Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development.

Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.”

“Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).”

Responsive Across Every Platforms

We build our sites designed with RWD in mind. We create the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images and CSS3 media queries.

We also use an extension of the @media rule to create fluidity and flexibility to the user’s browser’s width.

Today creating a responsive web sites is very important as the amount of mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of total internet traffic. This trend is so prevalent that Google has begun to boost the ratings of sites that are mobile friendly if the search was made from a mobile device.  This has the net effect of penalising sites that are not mobile friendly.

Cross-browser compatibility refers to the ability of a website to function in environments when some features pertaining to that environment is absent or lacking.

The website needs to function gracefully and seamlessly in spite of the lacking features and still work optimally without extra support. So effectively to the user the website does not look “broken” or doesn’t “crashes” the users system due to functional conflicts.
