The internet is home to a number of websites. These websites are hosted on various servers. Typically when we type or search for a particular website or domain the browser displays a lot of texts, few images and videos. The designing of the displayed content on the website is referred to as Web Design. To get a better understanding of it, we can relate it to the art of an interior designer.From the color pallets for the walls, to the types of carpets and rugs,everything is so artistically planned and executed by the interior designer. Same goes to the art of webdesign. The content , the color shades of texts and background,  the icons ,the buttons, the images and a lot more is tailor made to suite a particular theme of the website. All together create a stunningly beautiful eye-catching websites.

A high value websites is more than just attractive. Its the website’s responsiveness with respect to the user interaction that makes a website of high caliber.Web design used to be focused on designing websites for desktop browsers; however, since the mid-2010s, design for mobile and tablet browsers has become the norm. The static website design has now evolved into a more dynamically responsive website designs.

The static website were not very Flexible in their approach. When a website was built, it only was designed for a desktops screens. With the increase in mobiles and tablets or varying sizes, the need for dynamically adapting websites was emphasized.

Responsive Websites designs

Changes in browser width ,alters and adjusts the placement of design elemet to fit in the available space. If you open a responsive site on the desktop and change the browser window’s size, the content will dynamically rearrange itself to fit the browser window.

Key points to remember when designing a responsive website for utmost flexibility.

  • Aim for minimalism.

Overcrowding spaces with texts and unnecessary icons strains the eyes of viewer, and thus gives a negative score to it. So encourage white spaces and stick to minimalistic approach i.e,”Less is more”.

  • Prioritize and hide content to suit users’ contexts.

Understanding what needs to catch the most attention of the user is the beginning of webdesign. Prioritizing the elements of the designs in a certain context will do wonders to a webpage.

  • Include three or more breakpoints.

Meaning designing a website to atleast adapt to 3 types of width varying devices. Its the much needed upgrade to have the website responsively rearrange it’s design elements to fit the device width.

  • Take the mobile-first approach—start the product design process for mobile devices first instead of desktop devices.
  • Prioritize the use of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVGs). These are an XML-based file format for 2D graphics, which supports interactivity and animations.
