Responsive web design is getting a lot of hype. Many are saying it’s the ultimate way to build a website, some are saying it’s absolute rubbish and others think responsive web design and adaptive design can be extremely useful in certain circumstances. Regardless of your stance on responsive web design, even though some opinions may seem as controversial as the current election, I’ve compiled a list of websites that are designed responsively and designed well.
BBC News is a website that people access from all over the world to read the most up-to-date news on what’s going on in the world. The website its fluid images loads quickly on browsers across computers, laptops and smartphones.
United Pixelworkers’ website design utilizes boxes that move and change shape depending on the size of the browser. These boxes keep the site clean, which keeps their shirts in the spotlight.
Starbucks’ responsive website features a slider that stays easily accessible, no matter the browser size.
My favorite parts about Sony’s responsive website are the interchangeable navigation bars. When the browser is the size of a smartphone, the main navigation menu and the social media buttons switch places, which makes it easier to connect to Sony through social networks when the end-user isn’t connected to high-speed internet.
Qdoba’s responsive website uses a featured slider with flexible images that re-size quickly when the browser is made larger or smaller. The other content on the website is organized into boxes, that move and change shape just as easily as the slider.
Barack Obama’s campaign website is a beautiful example of responsive web design. No matter the size of the browser, the website makes sure that the visitors can easily opt-in to emails, donate money or sign up to volunteer.
Mountain Dew’s responsive website is really cool, because not only does it respond as the browser changes size, but it also responds and the site changes as you scroll.
Grey Goose’s responsive website is nothing but large, beautiful images. Fortunately, these gorgeous pictures are as flexible as a yoga master, which makes them easily seen in their full glory no matter the browser size.
Clear Air Challenge
The moving clouds on Clear Air Challenge’s website are pretty awesome. But not as awesome as the website really utilizing the width space in the desktop version, and then becoming a vertically-formatted website in a smartphone browser.
Berkshire Salon and Day Spa
Berkshire Salon and Day Spa’s website on a desktop contains a lot of categories paired with an image or list to click on. However, when reduced to smaller sizes, the categories are sorted in a vertical list to easily scroll through.
Ace Scholarships is all about providing scholarships and helping low-income students find a way to go to college, so this website is full of information on how to help students get funding for school. In a full desktop browser, you have access to that information. However, when you shrink the size of the browser, the information condenses as well, giving you only the most important bits.
