gonzogallery: Web-Inspiration #04 [Responsive Web Design]

| 2 Comments

To see how other designers/developers deal with some of the practical problems designing fully responsive sites (content management, navigation menu’s, responsiveness of images/vids, etc.), I love to examine existing responsive sites.

The term responsive in fact means that design and development should adapt to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. Responsive Design is a way to make your website look and work perfectly across all the new devices out there without creating and maintaining parallel mobile websites.

In the last year I published 4 fully responsive web designs and there are a lot more responsive web projects in the pipeline. Taking inspiration from other designs will help you create beautiful websites that grab user’s attention and increase the effectiveness of your site’s message.

At this moment I’m also making some tweaks on this blog design, and I’m designing a ‘real’ portfolio with custom post types for the different projects I’ve done, for this I also examined a lot of responsive websites and I’m showing you today some of these sites.

The purpose of this post is not to just simply show you good looking screenshots. I’ve tried to give you some inspiration which could spark some ideas for your own website or blog, .. and how to make it responsive too.
