Adaptive Web Design
Through the use of CSS Media Queries a mobile-friendly website will detect the width of a device and adapt its web content to fit. This approach to web design means that fonts, imagery, navigation and web space allocation will be scaled according to percentages or predetermined sizes. Sequential information that no longer fits on a smaller device can often wrap to the space below or be re-configured to fit into new dimensions. Excessive content can even be eliminated for smart phones displaying only essential elements.
Custom Mobile-Friendly Sites
A custom adaptive website gives the most precise control when displaying web content across a broad range of technologies. This solution offers pixel precision web design and can often overcome limitations on certain devices. We recommend this approach to any company that demands the very best web presence.
WordPress Adaptive Sites
WordPress has come a long way in addressing the requirement for mobile-friendly websites. We will create a unique theme for any client that requires the benefit of content management with an original design.
