Responsive Web Design and People who make them

Why is Responsive Design So Important?

 

Responsive design is important because it can help you solve a lot of problems for your website. Using Responsive design can enhance your website and attract more viewers. Using Responsive design will make your site mobile-friendly, improve the way it looks on devices with both large and small screens, and increase the amount of time that visitors spend on your site. It can also help you improve your rankings in search engines.

Responsive design is a way to put together a website so that it automatically scales its content and elements to match the screen size on which it is viewed. It keeps images from being larger than the screen width and prevents visitors on mobile devices from needing to do extra work to read your content.

The main goal of responsive design is to avoid the unnecessary resizing, scrolling, zooming, or panning that occurs with sites that have not been optimized for different devices. It is often very difficult to navigate these sites, and it may even cost you potential customers who become frustrated with trying to figure out how to do something.

 

The benefits of choosing  Responsive design for your website include:

Cost effectiveness

Flexibility

Improved user experience

Search engine optimization gains

Ease of management

FLEXIBILITY

When you have a website with responsive design, you can make changes quickly and easily. You do not need to worry about making changes on two websites. This flexibility is a huge advantage when you just want to make a quick design tweak or fix a typo on your site—you only have to do it once.

IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE

User experience is very important to website owners. You want people to find it easy to use your website so that they will return. To get more information Click Here.

ADDING BREAKPOINTS

Adding breakpoints in Muse is simple and intuitive. On the right-hand side you will see a scrubber that allows you to resize the width of the page, simulating a browser resizing.

The idea is to add breakpoint

Once you add the breakpoint, the breakpoint bar becomes color-coded. You can just right click to get the breakponiy properties.

This will open the breakpoint properties dialog box. Here you can control specific properties, from the color and/or position of the breakpoint to adding column guides to appear for that breakpoint.

MASTER PAGES

These breakpoints appear on the breakpoint bar as small triangles, to indicate where the breakpoints are in the master. You can click on the triangles to quickly position the scrubber to that location.

FORMATTING CONTENT AT BREAKPOINTS

When you add a breakpoint, you can reflow the content any way you’d like. Often times you’ll take an approach where you stack content, or resize the content so it’s larger making it easier to view on smaller screens. It’s not uncommon to show less content. As the screen gets smaller the content should get more specific. In the example below, you’ll notice that I went from a three-column layout for the larger breakpoint to a two-column layout for a smaller breakpoint. The images and text become larger, making it easier to view on a smaller screen.

A behavior you might encounter is objects “floating” a bit when the browser window is being resized. For these circumstances, Adobe has added a new option called Page Pinning. This is not to be confused with the Browser Pinning options available in previous versions, which would “pin” an element to the browser; if the user scrolled down the page, the pinned element would stay locked into position with content scrolling underneath it. Page pinning is a bit different. The element that is pinned using this option will still scroll with the browser, but if the element is located in the center of the page regardless of what the browser width is, the element will stay locked to the center of the page, albeit still scaling in size when the sizing properties are set as such.

MIGRATING A SITE TO RESPONSIVE

 

Next, you need to change attributes of the elements that you want to be fluid. You can do this by removing any previously established pins. You should then right-click on the object and select resize. This will give you various responsive options to select from.
