What is responsive design and why should I care?

Did you know that at some point in the next year or two there will probably be more people viewing your website on a mobile device than on a desktop computer?

You might have noticed lots of websites relaunching of late – SBS, Commonwealth Bank, Yellow Pages – and the huge growth in mobile web browsing is why. The message, from big business icon Forbes to tech mags like Mashable and The Next Web, is the same: get a responsive website or get left behind.

A responsive website is one that dynamically adapts and changes depending on the size of the screen/the device it’s being viewed on. Logos and menus will change, text and graphics will scale like magic. (And unlike building a costly standalone app you’ll only need to update your content in one place).

It can be a tricky concept to get your head around – if this is all going over your head the very cool Reponsinator might help you understand. (This is showing the Bodyflow website – try entering your url in at the top to see how it performs).
