Responsive Design

What Exactly Do We Mean by "Responsive Design"?

Simply put, Responsive Design is the ability for the elements within your website to adjust to the size and shape of the screen on which you are viewing the content.  Today, most desktop screens are shaped like a rectangle with the top and bottom being longer than the sides are tall.  This is referred to as a “Landscape” orientation.  However, most cell phones are oriented just the opposite, with the sides being taller than the length of the top and bottom of the rectangle.  This is “Portrait” orientation.  Obviously, an element on the website that is as wide as a screen that is landscape oriented won’t fit properly on a portrait oriented screen.  Responsive design solves this problem by reorienting the screen elements to properly fit within the orientation parameters.
