Build your Responsive Web Design Solution
Responsive Web Design (RWD) is an approach where the responsive website serve all devices on the same set of URLs, with each URL serving the same HTML to all devices. To change page rendering on the device, CSS3 is used.
InnovationM help clients to build responsive websites that loads fast and serves all devices on the same set of URL's. We follow a 4-step process as depicted below to create solutions based on Responsive Web Design principles:
Step 1: Design a fluid layout
Fluid layouts adapt to different device or browser dimensions by using percentages (instead of pixels) allowing elements to flow across the available space.
Step 2: Make it Adaptive
An adaptive layout utilises fixed + fluid grids, fixed + flexible images and media queries. AWD uses the components of progressive enha - ncement (PE) to define design methods that focus on the user, not the browser.
Step 3: Make it Responsive
The basic idea is to combine Fluid Layouts(%) with Adaptive Layouts(Media Queries) to make responsive solutions for desktop, tablets and phones.
Step 4: Make Images Responsive
As images constitute the 'max' bytes that are downloaded per page, the need to manage size of images in RWD is even more. At InnovationM, we use various techniques to make images responsive.
Use of frameworks
InnovationM believes in use of frameworks. In the world of mobile / responsive web, a framework is a package made up of a structure of files and folders of standardized code (HTML, CSS, JS documents etc.) which can be used to support the development of web apps / site. Responsive Web Design frameworks mastered by InnovationM are:
Most web solutions are structured in a very similar (not identical) way. Our aim of using frameworks is to alleviate the repetitive activities and promote code reuse, thereby saving lot of time.
