Showcasing a few Responsive Website Inspiration to get you inspired. Especially for those looking to design a new website for your business or venture. Or to get your outdated website redesigned. These are some of the best Responsive websites we have designed for our clients from around the globe.
Most people today are aware of the need for a mobile friendly site. And many today are aware of the possibility of creating a site that displays well on all devices.
But for those who still do not know what a Responsive Website means, I am going to quickly write an overview. Just to acquaint you with the basics of what it is and how it can help you in marketing your website or business.
In the meantime, you can also read my article here, A Brief Overview Of Responsive Web Design, if you want to go a little bit more in depth.
Responsive or Mobile Friendly Web Design
Responsive is a technique wherein the website responds to the device width and adjusts to provide an optimal view suited to the device. Therefore, if a user is viewing your website on a Desktop and switches to an iPad, the website would automatically adjust to the new device. Thus continually providing an optimal viewing experience.
Why is this important? Well, because there are so many devices in the market today with different screen sizes. Therefore, it is not practical to create a website for every device. In short, you cannot create a mobile site for every device in the market. Yet, it is important to be accessible on the mobile platform not to miss out on the big chunk of customers using those devices. Therefore, the solution is Responsive web design.
This technology has been around for some time now and yet not many sites have caught up with it. Most websites you see today are still not ready for the mobile audience. And missing out on potential customers.
Showcasing Mobile Friendly Websites For Inspiration
Today I want to showcase a few Responsive websites we have designed. This will not only prove to be an inspiration but also motivate you, as a site / business owner to go Responsive with your own site. To see the sites in action, simply re-size your browser or open the sites on your mobile devices, and notice how they change layout.
Though we have included in the screenshot how those sites look on Mobiles & Tabs.

The Universal Church – USA
Although this church has been in existence since 1959 and originated in Modesto, California, its presence is felt most strongly by its unique ability to connect its members and ministers via the internet. This law is the unifying concept that encourages all members to peacefully determine their own path towards spiritual growth and development.
Again the Universal church website is very simple with sober colors. They wanted a website that would be easy to extend. So we designed it in a way that makes it easy to add new pages and posts. It lets you add a unique header to every page.
