Responsive Web Design
Make your website 100% visible on today’s mobile devices including smart phones, iPads and tablets, with responsive web design from Akira Studio London.
Responsive web design for mobile devices
If your company or organization website doesn't work properly on a smart phone or portable tablet device, your business is missing out on up to 40% of potential customers who use their phones and mobile devices to surf for services just like yours. Responsive web design (RWD) ensures that your website work perfectly and looks great regardless of what kind of computer or mobile device it's viewed on.
Smart, good-looking mobile-friendly websites
At Akira Studio, we build your website to look great and be device-smart too! The days of needing two websites, a mobile website and a main websites, are long gone. Your main website will automatically detect what mobile device is being used to access your website, and adapt accordingly. Pages will resize to fit a smartphone or tablet screen, including repositioning images for optimum viewing. Our responsive websites work on every mobile operating system and mobile device. (See the bottom of the page for a list.)
Responsive webs design for disabled users
Responsive web design also ensures that those with disabilities can access all your content in a format suitable to their needs. If disabled visitors want to access special features such as text resizing or contrast settings, these are just a click away. Responsive features can be built in to every new Akira Studio website design.
Why do I need a responsive website?
Your business needs a responsive website for two very solid business reasons:
- Without one, you are missing out on at least 40% of users who browse websites on their phone or mobile device. Add the fact that 40% of all Canadian mobile device owners live in Ontario, and that's a massive chunk of the population that just won't find your information, products or services online unless your website is mobile-friendly.
- Your website must be legal! Under the 2005 Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, all public sector organizations and every large organization websites had to conform to WCAG 2.0 Level A by January 2014, and be AA level compliant by January 1 2021. Corporations can be fined up to $15,000 for contraventions. Government websites and websites for those funded or managed by government must be AA level compliant by January 2016, and this includes upgrading all existing websites.
Call us to discuss your website's accessibility and conformity requirements today and ensure your website is visible and accessible on the move!
What are these WCAG 2.0 Levels?
WCAG 2.0 are technical standards for creating accessible web content. Since January 1 2012 it's been the law in Ontario that public and business website must conform to at least level A in order to meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). We build all our websites with WCAG 2.0 AAA capability to make them future-proof. (For more details, see our WCAG-AAA compliance page.)
