What Responsive Web Design Isn’t:

What Is Responsive Web Design?

A website built using a responsive design method “responds” to the device being used to view the content. Instead of “pinching” to display hard to read content on your iPhone, the page content automatically moves, realigns, and re-sizes according to the device’s screen size. RWD is an approach to creating a single version of a website that provides the best possible experience for the viewer regardless of the device being used.

RWD is not an extra or bolt-on feature. It means design and construction of the website from the start with multiple devices in mind.

All websites built at Monterey Bay Design are reponsive.
