Everyone's got a mobile or a tablet these days, you can’t go far on the tube without seeing someone tweeting or updating their location. Mobile internet means that all of your favourite websites can end up squashed and looking tiny, therefore annoyingly difficult to navigate. Responsive Layout Design (or RLD for short) is one of those little functions people don’t seem aware of, but it does a pretty important job. The layout design responds to the device that is being used, such as an iphone or ipad. You can view the same website on different devices and it will amend the proportions of the interface.
As more and more people are viewing websites and doing work on their mobiles its becoming increasingly important to have this feature. When your clients are viewing your website you want them to have a fluid and clear experience. If users can't understand or read what's on your website, they will leave your site. We want them to navigate easily to your telephone number, social media share buttons or get in touch via email.
Having a responsive layout is nearly as important as good design and good content.
