Web designers have their work cut out for them in today’s ever evolving technology market. Without the right know-how and training, it might be hard for some businesses to keep their website design current. What’s more the numbers show that more than 60% of internet users are accessing websites via their mobile devices. That means that designers need to be able to craft sites that look great on all types of devices including: smartphones, tablets, laptops and home desktops.That is where companies like ours come into play. Sperling Interactive designs web sites that are easy-to-navigate on any device. Our Designer and Front-end Web Developer, Sarah Anne Hudson, specializes in the field of Responsive Design. Let’s meet her and find out more of her tips on Responsive Designs and as well as her tips on Embracing Footers.
Along with supporting responsive design, Sarah also suggests embracing Footers in the design of web pages. Using larger footers packed with highlighted content for the users is one of Sarah’s favorite design feature currently. In the web designing world, it is a popular design trend (for good reason!) Footers could include navigation, social media icons, contact info, Facebook feeds, etc.. Larger footers are a great secondary reference for users as they navigate through a site. For example, instead of a page that scrolls on forever, an elaborate footer would simplify navigation/contact info to another page without the hassle of scrolling back to the top of the page. So save your end users some time and needless swiping with a handily designed footer!
