Responsive design is an exciting web development technique that allows a single website to be viewed seamlessly on a variety of devices, from smartphones to desktop computers.
Organisations have seen a huge rise in the number of people accessing their websites using mobile devices, and so the ability to provide a full user experience on these devices is essential.
Mobile devices vary greatly in shape and size, from touchscreen smartphones to tablets of all sizes, and also use a number of different operating systems.
In the past, to enable a website to work on different devices required the creation of a number of versions; each using a different site structure, different templates and different content. This resulted in duplication, an overhead on resources to maintain the sites, and the financial implications of extensive development.
Responsive design makes it possible to create "one size fits all" websites which take the same functionality and content, and flow this onto the correct screen resolution. Our designers and developers are experts in the skills required to create sites which respond automatically to the device they are viewed on, with a single set of content and images.
Headland has delivered completely responsive sites for a number of clients. In conjunction with the BBC and Alton Towers, and working with TBWA Manchester, we launched the website for CBeebies Land. Built to promote an amazing attraction for kids at Alton Towers Resort, the site is fully responsive - providing an exciting and dynamic browsing experience on all devices and all sizes of screen.
