10 Inspiring Examples of the Best Responsive Web Design in 2017

We live in a time when we not only use computers but also use mobile phones, tablet PCs and laptops to surf the internet. The product range of mobile devices is growing year by year. This is the reason why so-called responsive website design plays and will play an important role.

Since Ethan Marotte introduced the term in 2010 for the first time, the development is on an upward trend. With the popularization of mobile Internet, the need of responsive web design is also increasing, responsive design is failing mobile UX.

As the name indicates, the design of these pages is responsive. Thus, it changes according to the characteristics of the terminals, such as the screen sizes. There is only one website for all devices. The design is no longer static - the arrangement and presentation of the individual elements such as bottom navigations, bars and images are variable. It makes the optimized display on each terminal and device-independent communication possible.

The technical standards of the best responsive web design are HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, based on a technique called Media Queries (CSS3). The screen size is used as the unit of measurement for relevant code. It means that CSS can be applied to different devices without great effort. Depending on the resolution ratios, the page layout and size of the elements and fonts, as well as the navigation can be adjusted. You do not have to heavily rely on Javascript or HTML code.
