Today we’ve launched our brand new website. Whilst aesthetically speaking (yes we do normally use this word in a different context), our new website looks similar to the old site on a desktop PC or laptop, it is now fully responsive.
What is a Responsive Website?
In today’s digital era, we no longer access the internet solely from a computer or laptop. Many of us also use tablets and smartphones which can have a wide variety of screen sizes and resolution. Have you ever visited a website on an iPhone or Android only to spend the next 5 minutes zooming in and out because you’ve landed on the desktop version of the website?
Responsive websites get around this problem by responding to the size of the device screen that you are viewing them on and moving the information around to fit your screen.
Want to see what we mean?
First let’s take a look at what you’d see if you went to our home page on a laptop or PC. The layout will be familiar to those of you who have been to our website before.
Next let’s have a look at what our website looks like on a tablet. The layout follows the same basic structure but to make it more user friendly the Navbar has collapsed down to a button and some of the page elements have been hidden to allow the user to focus on the key information on the page.
Finally the if you were to visit the home page on a smartphone you get an event more simplified version of the page. All of the key information is still available but it is now optimised for a much smaller screen.
So why not check out our brand new website from all of your digital devices and let us know what you think!
