Responsive Design Trends for the Mobile Web

Featured Image credit to Mark Riggan

It must be obvious by now that web designers are jumping onto the mobile bandwagon for almost every project. It’s commonplace to see people out and about playing around on their smartphones. And aside from native applications, much of this time is spent browsing the mobile web. We want to offer a great experience regardless of the device.

This is why responsive web design is such an important topic. Building your layout to respond to custom browser conditions means you only need to code a single template. Then using advanced CSS techniques you can reformat the fonts, menus, and page elements. Responsive design is truly the future of mobile web design.

So check out the small gallery below of mobile website layouts. These contain both live sites and mockups for ideas. I hope these examples can ignite some fresh concepts into your own project work. Additionally feel free to share your thoughts with us in the post discussion area.
