Responsive or Adaptive Design
If you want your website to be mobile friendly, that means all pertinent information must be visible from a smart phone. Menus and navigation must be fully operable—and all must be usable by the highly inaccurate thumbs that guide our mobile experiences.
There are two basic ways to manage mobile-ready design:
Adaptive Design: Essentially, this is a website that is broken down into three basic sizes: mobile, tablet, and desktop. This design will feature break points in the code, so the browsing device knows which version of the site to display. In other words, this type of website build will display one version of your website, depending on the viewing size of the user’s device.
Responsive Design: A responsive design is, usually, harder to achieve and better for your user’s experience. Instead of using break points to delineate which version of the website you see, a responsive design uses proportions and percentages in order to give each and every screen size the best possible experience.
NSE Media, in compliance with best practices, will incorporate some adaptive and some responsive elements into each and every design. This will optimize your user’s experience and ensure that, no matter what size the screen, everyone has an easy path to your contact forms.
