It is common that, when we are developing a web design project, the client asks us to be able to see the entire website on their screen. Although it is said that the client is always right, in this case we have to say no.
One option, although it would give us a lot of problems, would be to adapt the website we design to their computer screen. To do this we would need to know the exact size of your screen, what browser you are going to use to open it, and how many bars you have installed in your browser, which leave less space for viewing the websites.
How responsive design works
It is important, first of all, to forget and avoid the obsession of seeing a website adapted to a specific screen. And even more so, taking into account the great and growing variety of screens.
To get an idea of the variety we have: up to 14 different screen sizes have a relevant volume of use. For example, nowadays most searches are done on mobile phones and not even IPhone maintains the screen size from one model to another.
Advantages of a responsive website
Starting from the premise that responsive design makes us visible on all devices, it would not be necessary to argue much more. However, let's take a look at some other advantages.
- Better SEO: Google gives priority to websites that display well on all devices, being able to load more easily. In addition, this means more organic traffic that can visit our website.
- Better user experience: it is important to bear in mind that the experience on the page is increasingly a factor of greater relevance to show our website in search results. On the other hand, it facilitates the user's navigation once they are on our page.
- It reduces costs and time: if we have to make several versions and sizes of each web design, it would be a waste of time and would have very little coverage. The reponsive allows us to optimise efforts and focus on a quality design for everyone.
Why responsive web design is important
So, when considering a web design
, what is important is to have a good responsive web design that adapts perfectly to the multitude of devices from which we can connect to the Internet today, and that allows easy navigation for the user.
This should be the priority, and not that the entire website is seen on your screen, as it should take into account the set of target users, and not the particular casuistry. An adaptive web design will ensure that when we view a website from any device, it will be displayed correctly.
