Responsive designs for websites were developed in the year 2010 since then responsive designs have gained huge popularity. Responsive designs have turned out to be one of the best ways to design a website. It is a onetime investment worth investing. It creates a consistent experience across devices.
Below are a few responsive designs for websites that deserve a special mention
ELEKS Google Glass Experiments
ELEKS Google Glass Experiment site has won “site of the day” by both TheFWA and Awwwards. The desktop version of the website is one of the most interactive websites to be ever released. It has both visual elements and microphone connectivity to effectively show users what using Google Glass will be like when it comes to doing athletics. While the mobile site could never hope to quite live up to its desktops counterpart, it does feature some nice elements of its own.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz landing page for their new product V-Class was a very inspiring responsive design. The desktop version features a video background that loads impressively quick and highlights the experience of the V-class. The best part of this site is that the site that renders on the mobile device has a clear difference in terms of purpose than the desktop version. The desktop version is designed to create brand awareness and the mobile version is more informative. Having a responsive website that modifies itself according to different devices and different purpose is a brilliant design.
Blue foundation is a very responsive website which loads well in all devices. The user experience on a small screen like a mobile device is also one of the best parts of this website. There are consistent themes and brandings across devices that give users who have been to the website on one device a seamless transaction to another.
Batman: Arkham Knight
I’m not a big fan of Batman but it did leave me impressed! The Batman Arkham Knight is highly impressive in the desktop browser it has replicated the same experience on all the devices. The Website is a visual treat as it has high-quality images and loads fast. This site makes the game look attractive and clearly serves the purpose of attracting the audience and provides an amazing user experience.
Skinny Ties website loads super fast. It is impressively responsive; the content in the website adjusts itself to suit the screen. After the website adopted responsive website it got many conversions. Whether you like ties or not this website is worth checking out.
Eurosport is one of the biggest sports networks in Europe. The Website is particularly great at catering each version to be more easily usable for each device. In the desktop version, there is a lot of text as desktop users have a lot of time to sit in front of the desktop and read, but the mobile version of the website features only images, highlights of the game, breaking news, scores so that users get easy and quick updates. The company has taken the time to understand its target audience before designing the website.
Websites that is concerned about the user experience is what wins at the end of the day and is Google’s favorite too. These websites have understood this fact and have been designed to increase the user experience. There are many other websites which have an amazing responsive design but I thought these deserved a special mention.
