One of the major goals of my recent redesign was to develop this site responsively. I’ve talked quite a bit about responsive design the last few months and don’t want to rehash it all, but thought I would share some of my thoughts and process along with some lessons I learned in building this site.
Speed and performance are a critical aspect of mobile design. Using media queries to design your site responsively is a great way to ensure proper display on mobile devices. But just shrinking a desktop site to work on a mobile device can affect performance.
Yesterday at Web Directions South in Sydney, I gave a talk about Adapting to Responsive Design. I didn’t talk about media queries, responsive images or fluid grids (yes, I know – that’s not like me). Instead, I talked about some of the other things that responsive design challenges: process, business, advertising and content. In the fifteen minute segment on content, I very briefly touched on something I’ve been thinking about for an awfully long time: content management.
Skinny Ties has produced and sold neckwear since 1971. GravDept redefined the company’s creative and technical direction to propel shopping on every device. This is your introduction. For the last year, I have focused on responsive eCommerce — not mobile commerce — but on strategies that consider all devices. Since my presentation on responsive design at Magento Imagine, I’ve been rather silent on the subject while digging the trenches. I’m proud to further advocate the responsive approach and present Skinny Ties for consideration.
After you use the tools to make an or all element in your design responsive, the next step is to make sure your website displayed correctly in many resolutions. How? The ridiculous way is to look your website in many physical devices with different resolutions (even a sane rich guy would think twice before do this, right?) or alternatively (the more realistic way), you can also manually resize your browser, but sometimes it could be annoying.
Designing a web in the past was very easy because you only had to design it for one device, the desktop computer. Today, with the great advancement of new technologies and devices, web designing has become tougher as compared to the past.
