5 Best Practices for Responsive Web Design in Dallas

Oct 24, 2022 | Web design

Effective Dallas web design will be attractive and easy to use on a desktop or mobile device. Consider a responsive design for your new website to ensure that your site always looks its best.

 

Why Responsive Web Design in Dallas?

With the recent pandemic, more people have been shopping, researching, and communicating online. Not only are people online, but more and more are using their mobile devices. In fact, the number of people who mainly used mobile devices increased to nearly 60 percent globally in 2022. This number was below 50 percent five years ago.

If you want to attract your target audience, your website design Dallas must grab their attention on a phone or tablet and be easy for them to navigate. Here are five practices to consider.

 

1. Flexible Layout

A mobile-friendly design should be the goal from the beginning of the design process. This means that every aspect of your design will be easy to view and read on the smallest screen available. If you only design for a large screen, there is the risk of your site shrinking to a point where it becomes impossible to navigate or requiring horizontal scrolling to view the page.

However, do not ignore desktop with your design. The goal is to create a design that is amazing on every screen.

 

2. Navigation

Navigation can be difficult when it comes to Dallas web design. The full navigation menu that you see on a computer screen will not work on a phone. The typical workaround is the familiar hamburger icon that brings forward the navigation.

3. Typography and Images

Of course, the images and typography of your website are crucial to sharing your message with your audience. Not only do you need to choose a font that will be large enough and clear enough to read quickly, but a font that is too large can also create unintentional line breaks in the mobile view.

In addition to carefully choosing your font, make sure that you have appropriately sized images. There is no reason to place a 4,000 px image in a space that will only fit 500 pixels. Not only will this complicate your design, but it will also slow down valuable loading time.

 

4. Calls to Action

Calls to action are important features in website design Dallas. Buttons need to be large enough for people to tap when they are on the phone. In addition to creating larger buttons, make sure that visitors can easily find your calls to action items. Whether they are at the top of the page or near headings, each call to action should be prominently displayed.

 

5. Content

People online prefer easily scannable content. We accomplish this through the use of headings and subheadings. Even content-heavy sites can be simple and straightforward to use once the content is divided into bite-sized pieces.

These are just a few practices to consider when creating a responsive web design in Dallas. If you have any questions about our design process, please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to meet with you.
