Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Website Design From Alacrify
Recent years have seen a huge shift in the market towards responsive website design, which means the websites we build will work on all devices, whether a mobile phone, a tablet or a desktop PC.
The way in which we design and develop websites has changed to meet this ever increasing demand. Making sure your website remains functional and attractive is crucial to a good customer experience.
Why Do I Need It?
There are a number of reasons why you should have a responsive website design, including:
- Compatability with all modern devices
- Improved user experience
- Improved functionality
- One website - for all devices
- Site loading speed
Mobile phone and tablet internet usage has overtaken desktop internet access. With this in mind, it’s important to make sure your website is fully accessible for all web users.
What Is Responsive Website Design?
Responsive Website Design involves one set of code to display a website optimally across all web enabled devices such as tablets, smartphones and PCs.
For e-commerce stores, there is no question of whether or not to upgrade to a fully responsive site, if you don’t, you’re losing customers through a lack of usability, simple as that. We use Shopify for most e-commerce solutions and customise their templates, ensuring they look beautiful no matter the viewport.
For all other websites we use the widely respected Zurb Foundation Framework combined with our own content management systems (CMS)
