“Web Design is responsive design, Responsive Wed Design is web design, done right.” – Andy Clarke

A responsive design website responds to the device it’s being viewed on by fluidly changing the layout, content, and interactions to best accommodate that particular device. The design philosophy behind responsive design is to improve user experience, usability, and accessibility of a website through media queries, fluid grid layout, and flexible images and media.

Scalability is key to Responsive Design.

Responsive websites uses one website to intuitively adapt content based upon multiple fluid grid layouts without altering the site’s functionality or aesthetics, unlike adaptive design which uses multiple fixed width layers. This fluid scaling ensures that a user is viewing the best site for their particular device and  thus, optimizes viewing for current and future devices and screen-size.
