Increasingly mobile phones and notepads are used to access websites. This can be a problem if the site layout has been designed using absolute values for width and height. It may look good on the designers PC but it is almost impossible to view on a smart phone!
Responsive web design, which uses fluid, proportion-based values in the site layout, solves this problem by using. The website adjusts automatically according to the device being used to access it.
We offer responsive web designs as standard so that your site will look as good on a smart phone as it does on a large screen PC.
There are many free on-line tools to test if a site is responsive (e.g. Am I Responsive). A simple, if unsophisticated, way to check how your site may look on various devices is to reduce the width of your browser window by dragging the right hand edge into the middle of the screen. Try it on this page.
As soon as we completed the draft design of your website (usually just the home page) it will be uploaded onto our test server. You will be able to access the site and suggest any changes you would like to see.
You will be able to follow the development of the website as it will be continually updated throughout the process.
The test site is password protected so that only you will be able to access the site whilst it is being developed.
