How to optimize for mobile with responsive Web design

OSHKOSH, Wis. --(Business Wire)--

This month's Blue Paper®, podcast and infographic from promotional products retailer 4imprint is about responsive Web design. Entitled How to optimize for mobile with responsive Web design, it focuses on the benefits that come with a mobile site, specifically one that responds, or sizes, to the screen dimensions and resolutions of each device that visits it.

Between Android®, iPhone (News - Alert)®, Blackberry® and Windows®, it seems as if a new mobile device is introduced to the market each day, each with a different screen size than the next. Ensuring that websites appeared optimized for each device has been a challenge more many businesses. Luckily, there are multiple mobile solutions between mobile applications ("apps"), mobile templates and mobile sites. Now, there's responsive Web design (RWD) too. Responsive is an innovative Web design that ensures website content is optimized for desktops as well as mobile devices. And, it's become so effective that it has been recognized as Google's (News - Alert) "recommended configuration."

"As more and more companies look at different options to reach their mobile customers, Responsive Web design is an emerging trend they may want to consider," says Greg Ebel, the vice president of sales and marketing at 4imprint®. "This Blue Paper pulls together information to help explain what responsive Web design is and why some companies are starting to use it."
