Web design encompasses a number of different techniques; from web graphic design to SEO. In this technological age, we at Toast Media believe in designing fluid and highly responsive websites, commonly known as RWD. A responsive website is designed to adapt and change its layout depending on what device it is displayed on. It does so using proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries; in the following ways:
- The proportion-based grid allows the page being viewed to re-size according to the size of the screen the page is being viewed on; such as a desktop, smartphone or tablet.
- The use of flexible images prevents the graphics from displaying outside their containing element.
- CSS styles are based on characteristics of the device the site is being displayed on, most commonly the width of the browser
