Basic Principles of Responsive Web Design

Responsive web design has come to resolve the problems of multi-screen. However, it is not adequate from the print perspective. An element of fixed size of page cannot be seen in the web design now-a-days. Therefore, physical constraint is not seen in the periphery quite naturally. Previously, web designing is done on the basis of pixels for mobile and desktops. By using responsive web design, more websites can be opened in the mobile device. It is important to know about few basic principles of web designing. Fluidity can be achieved quite easily with the web designing of responsive nature. In-depth knowledge about website designing can be achieved if web designer put focus on the layouts.

Adaptive Vs Responsive Web Design
Both the aspects of the responsive and adaptive web designing look similar to each other. It compliments basic principle.

The Flow
If the size of the screen becomes smaller then it takes additional vertical space in the device. Extra attributes of the website is moved down. It can be considered as the flow of the website quite naturally. Problems can be seen in order to grasp the entire process in this manner. Web design is not created on the basis of points and pixels. Time is required in order to become used to with the situations quite naturally.
Relative Units
For different platforms like mobile screen, desktops and laptops, variations can be seen quite naturally. Change in pixel density can be seen due to this reason as well. Flexibility is required in the website in order to make it work perfectly. Relative units can be seen as an important factor in this situation. In order to make a screen 50% wider, you have to take a significant part of the screen.
Predefined change in the layout has been allowed by breakpoints. It creates 3 columns in the desktop and 1 column in the mobile device. If the website is designed with the CSS properties then it can be changed quite easily. Usually, alteration in the website from desktop to mobile screen depends on the content, such as on Falcon Marketing’s article about Google Adwords. Breakpoint can be added if a sentence is twisted from the middle. However, it should be used with utmost caution. Confusion can be seen if there is a problem to define the influence of each other.
Maximum and Minimum Values
Content can take every inch of the website quite easily. Similar type of content can have less impact when it is presented in the mobile screen. In this situation, assistance can be taken from the minimum and maximum values. If the width of the website takes more than 100% then every inch of the website can be filled.
Nested Objects
It is necessary to remember about the relative position. Managing different kinds of elements at one go can be a difficult task to achieve. Therefore, it is better to put a limitation on the elements of the website quite naturally. In this way, website can be given cleaner and excellent effect. Help can be taken from static pixels in this situation. Important attributes of the website such as buttons and logos should not be overlooked.
