The idea for a separate list, the responsive web design. This stems from the principle of reactive architectural planning, according to which space or a room automatically adapts to the flow and number of persons this contains: inject this approach into web design, and we have similar but completely new thinking. Why should we produce a custom web design for each group of users? After all, architects don’t design a building for every size and community form that passes through it? Like the reactive design, the web design has to be automatically corrected. For each new consumer category, it shouldn’t require countless custom solutions.

Of course, we can’t use motion detectors and robotics as a building would. Web design intuitive calls for a more abstract way of thinking. But already some innovations are being put into practice: dynamic templates, media queries, and scripts that can quickly (or automatically) format web pages and annotate them.

Yet responsive web design is not just about versatile screen sizes and automatically resizable images, but a whole new way of thinking on design. Let’s talk about each of those qualities and the extra ideas being created.

PART OF THE SOLUTION: ALL Versatile The design columns (structural components) with the text were the only thing that was versatile in a design when flexible structures were almost a “luxury” for sites. Images can quickly separate designs and when forced even elastic structural components break the form of a design.

A responsive web design showcase Here are a few examples of realistic responsive web design. The style and structure of many of these websites varies more than the pairs of screenshots provided reveal. For many different browsers, many have multiple options and some even create dynamically sized elements without the need for certain browser dimensions. Go to each and correct the browser measurements, or change the devices to see them in practice.


We are now entering a new era of designing and developing the Internet. There are already too many options available and, in the long run, too many will continue to adjust and create custom solutions for each screen size, computer and technical advancement. Rather we should start a new age now: we should build sites that are now ready for the future. Knowing how to build a consumer-friendly interface needs little preparation, and it could definitely be far less stressful and more effective than learning how to correctly code and design for each device available.
