Web technologies and the way we build websites are changing rapidly. Websites need to respond to different devices and allow website administrators to manage content.
Contemporary websites need to work on contemporary devices. The dramatic increase in the use of mobile devices and tablets in recent years has forced designers to rethink how websites are designed. A popular new approach termed “Responsive Web Design” incorporates fluid layouts that change to fit different screen widths using current HTML5 technologies. This approach is well suited to a Web where there are large discrepancies in the widths of devices and browsers.
The process of designing a website typically includes:
- Design Mockups
- Graphic design specifications
- Site graphic standards manual for large, complex sites
- Interface design and master page grid templates completed
- Detailed page comps or finished examples of key pages
