You can also have a look at both responsive promotional and eCommerce website examples viewed on different devices.

Responsive web design is an approach whereby a web designer creates a web page that "responds to" or resizes itself depending on the type of device it is being seen through. That could be an oversized desktop computer monitor, a laptop, or devices with small screens such as smartphones and tablets.

The purpose of responsive design is to have one site, but with different elements that respond differently when viewed on devices of different sizes. The layout changes based on the size and capabilities of the device.

So if a website is able to adapt itself to the screen of the user, it's a responsive website.

How Does Responsive Web Design Work?

Responsive sites use fluid grids. All page elements are sized by proportion, rather than pixels. So if you have three columns, you wouldn't say exactly how wide each should be, but rather how wide they should be in relation to the other columns. Column 1 should take up half the page, column 2 should take up 30%, and column 3 should take up 20%, for instance.

A promotional web site or e-commerce web site can be designed responsive. You can see an example of both responsive designed promotional website and e-commerce website below within different types of devices;

Media such as images is also resized relatively. That way an image can stay within its column or relative design element.

With responsive web design, your website becomes a mobile responsive and user friendly as it works compatible with all devices.

Visitors can easily navigate responsive designed e-commerce websites as well. See an example of e-commerce website we designed above, Canvas701 which is a brand of Office701 where we sell cool canvas tables.

No matter what device they use to visit your website, they can find what they are looking for thanks to responsive design technology.
