Responsive web design, also known as RWD design, describes a modern approach to web design that allows websites and pages to automatically adapt to the screen (whether it’s a desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or even a smart TV). Responsive web design automatically adjusts to different screen sizes and viewports. With a responsive website, someone can browse your website from any device and it still looks and functions flawlessly.
Dropbox does a great job of designing a great responsive website using a fluid grid and flexible visuals. When moving from desktop to handheld devices, not only does the font color change to fit the background color, but the image also changes orientation. With context in mind, Dropbox offers a customized experience for each device. For example, to prevent users from bouncing, a small arrow directs desktop users to scroll down to see more content. Handheld devices don’t have the same arrows, as users are assumed to scroll naturally on touchscreen-capable devices. Likewise, their sign-up form is visible on desktops but hidden behind a call-to-action button on tablets and mobile where space is limited.
Dribbble’s website features one of the hallmarks of responsive web design: a flexible grid that condenses from five columns on desktops and laptops to two columns on tablets and phones. To keep their website from looking cluttered on mobile devices, Dribbble removed several items. For example, the footage is no longer attributed to its creator, and views, comments, and likes counts are no longer nested under each item. They also hide the menu behind the hamburger icon and remove the search bar.
GitHub’s website provides a consistent experience on every device. When moving from desktop to tablet, the above-the-fold area changes from a two-column layout to a single-column layout, with the copy above the registration form instead of next to it. Unlike desktop and tablet devices, where their signup form is the central focus, GitHub only displays a call-to-action button on mobile. The user must click on the call to action to display the form. Like Dribbble, GitHub also removed the search bar and hid the menu behind a hamburger icon on handheld devices. This is a very common practice as it helps reduce clutter on mobile devices with limited space.
Shopify‘s user experience is compatible across all devices. Only call-to-action buttons and images have changed from desktop to mobile devices. On personal computers and tablets, the call-to-action button is to the right of the form field. On mobile devices, it’s down. Likewise, images are on the right side of the copy on personal computers and tablets, whereas they are placed under the copy on mobile devices. Like most websites, Shopify‘s menu is replaced by a hamburger icon on the handheld device. Despite using image carousels to show their customers, they have managed to keep their page load speeds below five seconds, which is quite impressive.
Slack’s brand is known for being simple and user-friendly. It’s no surprise that their website follows the same guidelines. Their flexible grid easily adapts to viewports of various sizes and shapes. For example, while customer logos are displayed in a three-column layout on desktops and laptops, they are displayed in a single-column layout on handheld devices.
Creating a responsive website takes more time and professional guidance to create and test compatibility for different screens. The cost of creating a responsive website in India depends on:
If it’s an already existing website and you need to make it responsive, it will cost anywhere from ₹5000 to ₹20000. In the case of a blog, business website, or portfolio website, the fee ranges from ₹9000 to ₹20,000. In the case of an e-commerce website, the cost to make the website responsive starts from ₹35,000.
A one-page or single-page website is also known as parallax website designing. With a one-page parallax website, you can focus on quality rather than quantity. Single-page websites are especially good for businesses that just need to get up and running quickly to have some kind of website presence, but they’re also great for people accessing the website from a mobile or smaller device. If you don’t have a lot of website content/text/copy, then a single-page website, also known as a long scrolling website, might be the right choice for you. A one-page website design cost starts from ₹8000 in India.
