15 Responsive Web Designs for Developers
Things are changing in the tech world and the migration of users from PC to tablets or phones adds modifications to the way web sites are designed because web sites have to be optimized for these new platforms.
This website hits all the right buttons. Full page design, large boxes and typography with some amazing photography and they make the use of the great photography when viewed on smaller devices.
Merixstudio love their grids and so do I. The homepage features a large, short statement with 3 of their chosen projects in a grid style that effortlessly shifts in to one column when viewed on a smaller device.
A truly beautiful website with a great use of fonts and colours. My favourite thing about this website though is that the text slowly grows and shrinks depending on the screen size. I am easily pleased.
This website is beautifully simple and is a great example of responsive, flat UI. The colour scheme is inoffensive, easy on the eyes and I love the subtle highlights of colour.
ZURB has a great colour brand and is a great example of responsive web design in 2014. When the responsive design kicks in, the colour scheme and header totally changes to give two totally different experiences to the user.
Dane Bowen has used a very bold colour with a heavy use of iconography to keep a simple design interesting. When viewed on a smaller device, the icon boxes are turned in to large, easy to use lists.
2nd Floor have a nice light, clean design with some awesome fonts (Geeky I know…). They have used a grid method here meaning when viewed on a smaller device, the design changes from multi-columns to a single column.
Mostly Serious use large but little typography to fill the page without bombarding the user with too much information. This is a classic responsive design with another grid layout and the menu is a beautifully simple responsive drop down.
Josh Johnson had used a nice baby blue, my favourite colour to use in design, to create a clean, eye pleasing design. My favourite part is the inspired homepage portfolio that cleverly shifts in to one column on a smaller device.
WOW. I love this design, even though this post is about responsive design, this is one of my favourite designs I’ve come across for a while. Inspiringly simple with a grid layout gives this the ease of navigations and the simplicity to get their message across.
