Best Practices for Embracing Responsive Web Design

Why is responsive Web design (RWD) a hot area of discussion? Take a moment to glance at your Web analytics—the high percentage of mobile viewership is the reason. It’s no longer enough to simply have a mobile presence. Today, it’s important to supply an outstanding, intuitive mobile experience to users. In an ideal world, you would supply existing content and applications to your mobile users without requiring extra work from your organization.

Bespoke creation for each unique device is not feasible. Time to market is crucial and a broader strategy is required—one that can work on devices today, tomorrow, and next year. As you consider an RWD initiative for your organization, review these key considerations and how they could impact your organization's efforts.

  • Revisit experience. Revisit the priority of user interaction. What aspects of an experience take a back seat when delivered through a form factor with limited real estate? Which take priority?
  • Core form factors. Though RWD can work on any size device, start with basics such as desktop, tablet, and smart phone.
  • Technical approach. How will you alter part of the experience for each form factor? Use fluid columns? Remove columns? Change key links into buttons? A quick Google search will supply plenty of technical resources.
  • Navigation. With limited real estate, will you prioritize key navigational elements and remove secondary options, based on the priorities defined in step 1? For instance, is "on site" search more important with limited navigation?
  • Data interaction. Is an authenticated user experience part of your mobile offering? How will you surface back-end data in a meaningful way on limited form factors? Will you require modified ways for people to submit information to you?
