Responsive Web Design

Streamline and reuse content across devices. Elements like layout, text size, content, navigation, and images automatically adjust to fit the device your customer prefers.

Multiple devices. One web experience.

How many times have you had a web page look just fine on your desktop but go haywire on mobile? If your website isn’t optimized for every platform and device — mobile or otherwise — you risk delivering an inconsistent online experience and losing a customer to frustration. After all, your competitor is just one click away.

Responsive web design gives you the ability to design web pages that adapt easily across all devices. This means your website successfully engages your customer consistently across all platforms. Responsive web design reconfigures layout, text size, content, and navigation tools to adapt to various screen sizes and functionalities. Before you even publish, you can preview and optimize performance across a variety of devices. Plus, you can automate auto-resizing across devices, increasing content velocity and saving you time.


See what makes it work.

Develop fluid grids

Build a fluid grid that acts as scaffolding for your content to fit into neatly. Fluid grids smoothly resize depending on the screen size of the device.

Scale all content

With responsive web design, you don’t just make sure your written content behaves no matter where it’s delivered. This feature scales images as well to ensure they conform to the content being presented, so you can kiss jarring image overhangs goodbye.

Preview for specific devices

You pick which device you’d like to preview on, and we’ll show you what your page will look like on each device, including tablets and smartphones.

Image optimization

Based on bandwidth, screen size, and DPI, you can optimally deliver the best image size for whichever experience you’re creating.
