Because it’s so simple, I love responsive web design and I believe that every web designer should add a little bit of responsiveness to their work. A responsive design is the design that allow a website to brake itself down smoothly across different monitor sizes and devices (computers, tablets and smartphones). The most simple way of doing this is with CSS (I will cover this a little bit later in another article) and it’s important because it eliminates the need to have multiple versions of your website, for example a normal version and a mobile version of your website. And given the fact that more and more people are using mobile devices an tablets to browse the internet, it’s another important reason to offer them a nice and responsive version of a website.
