Responsive Websites

August 17, 2015
Back to All News


There's been a few clients lately who have asked me to make their sites "responsive" - meaning the layout changes according to the viewing size. On a smartphone or tablet, the screen size is generally smaller than a desktop. So you've probably noticed that websites are tougher to read...UNLESS:

CSS (style sheets) changes are made that make use of "media queries". Media queries are rules according to screen size, and can also detect portrait/landscape view.

I've implemented responsive rules for www.stonemountainhomebuilders.com, www.adamsalehouse.com, www.mutualfundinvestorguide.com, and www.greylockrealty.com. When these sites are viewed on a tablet, a smartphone, or even on a smaller-sized window on your PC/laptop, the layout will change. Items will be blocked differently, the menu will stack, header/footer will change, text will be easier to read, and in some cases - portrait mode on a smaller screen - only the essential items will be visible.

I want to get a website built.
What's next?
1. Gather your ideas. What you want for a domain name, what media you currently have (logos, photos), and what sites on the internet you particularly like.
2. Fill out the form below. Expect a response quickly, usually within a day. We'll get in touch with you to go over the scope & cost of the project, the design, domain name, media, get email taken care of, and make sure the whole machine is running smoothly.

Break ground on a new website or editing an existing website by filling out & submitting this form. Go into as much detail as possible.

For a new website, mention the domain name you're looking to use and whether or not you've got some media (photos, logos, stationary) to get started.

For an existing website or for website edits, describe the details of what you're looking to do.
