What is Responsive Web Design (RWD)?

Our designers have developed a system in which they’re able to seamlessly create and design website layouts that will be easily developed in a responsive system. What you may not realize is that in order for your site to be developed into a responsive system, the front end design has to be strategic and very well thought out. Here’s a little background on
Basic Fluid Layout
In a basic fluid layout, the content on a webpage adjusts continually in a word-wrap type fashion as the screen width is increased or reduced. The content presentation on the webpage doesn’t change in a “distinct” fashion.
This is where responsive starts to get good! In the development of a webpage with an adaptive layout, there are predefined sizes where different page layouts are triggered, called “break points.” We typically use 3 breakpoint set ups to accomodate desktop, tablet and mobile screen sizes.
Miles Design Responsive Layout
This is how Miles Design does responsive web design: we use a hybrid of basic and adaptive layouts. Three breakpoints exist where page structure will adapt to screen size and screen size adjustment. In addition, we use the fluid layout to allow the web content to flow with the adjustment of screen size by the user. This allows for the most optimal user experience.
