Why responsive ? Google has made a significant update to its search algorithm impacting the way websites are ranked when performing searches. If your site isn’t mobile friendly, your business is going to suffer.

I design, develop, and maintain responsive web sites and have been for the last ten years. This is our latest project for a start up construction and maintenance business here in the North West. The comnpany had existing branding and were ready to launch a web presence. Reports show smartphones and tablets combined now account for 6o percent of all online traffic, up from 50 percent a year ago, so even a business to business company like Smart, needs to reflect this and be responsive to different screen sizes.

The preparation for development was fairly straight forward. I had a brief meeting with the Director of the business Paul, to find out a little more about what was required. We discussed project goals, timescales and compared a variety of other web sites in the sector. I came away with a list of requirements, a rough structure of pages and some text and image content. Over the next few days I worked the branding and content into a three design concepts - then uploaded to web space for Paul and his team to evaluate. Once a preference was identified I built a beta site on test space and uploaded a holding page to the correct domain URL. This meant all stakeholders in the project were able to see the progress and contribute content and suggestions at the earliest possible opportunity. After a couple of weeks, we were there and launched the site. A few screen grabs are below.
