Digity: Responsive In A Multi-Screen World

  • By Chris Lunn

The days of simple html or flash are behind us and your business now needs to target users on mobile, tablet and desktop devices, serving content to them in different ways.  The common term for websites which serve all 3 needs is 'responsive'.

It's easy to assume that some types of people will typically just use one type to device to find you but research shows that 90% of people use multiple screens sequentially to accomplish a task over time.  The average person uses a combination of 3 different screens every day and smartphones are the most common starting place for online activities.
When it comes to more complex activities, PCs/laptops are still the most common starting place whereas tablets are the most often starting point for shopping and trip planning.

Depending on your industry therefore, your main focal point for design is likely to change but what these stats really tell us is that we need to be considering all 3 continuously.


The Future For Mobile Only Sites

Whilst having a bolt-on mobile site for your company helps the visitor experience, Google themselves declated back in 2012 that they preferred responsive web design over separate mobile and desktop websites.

The reason is that one single URL makes it easier for Google to search a site for relevant content and therefore responsive websites generally rank higher in search results.

multi-screen websites are unique, containing high-powered, built-in features which are designed to meet the needs of your business and customers.

Alamo Blinds , a local showroom of blinds, shutters, curtains and outdoor living, came to us a couple of years ago for a new brand and website for their business after they left the franchise they were in. At the time, we supplied them with a distinctive look and cohesive website which served all of their needs. Now we have been working together to update both the brand and website to give it a more contemporary and established look to go with their successful business.

The Logo

The previous Alamo Blinds logo (pictured below left) was a flowing typeface with a sans serif slogan font. It was friendly, approachable and tidy, but the client felt that he wanted it to be updated to something that can be more clearly read on their vans when they are driving around. The new logo (below right) uses a typeface with more distinct shapes to the letters, making it easier to decipher from further distances. We have kept a friendly and approachable aspect to it in the slogan font, which overall means you keep the same feeling from the old logo, but with added readability and modernity.

What better way to sell gorgeous products than on a beautiful, sleek and modern website?  

Home by Rachel  provides beautiful home interiors, stunning jewellery and a bespoke range of hand-poured luxury candles. Rachel came to us with a bland but functional website that didn't entice people off the home page, so in our redesign we ensured that the site looked bright, welcoming and interesting.

With large, good quality images and sliders the site began to look a lot more attractive, and the new clearer layout made the site easier to navigate. The intimacy of the brand is represented through the personal feel of the website, whilst the stunning imagery indicates the thought that has gone into each quality product.

At the end of October a new version of Google Chrome was released that clearly labels any website without an SSL Certificate as ‘non-secure’. This will be shown in the browser bar clearly to the online user.

This will effect a huge range of websites, particularly e-commerce sites or any that contain input fields, like password requests and contact forms. Studies indicate up to 84% of online shoppers will abandon their purchase once seeing that a site is not secure ( Source ). Having an SSL certificate gives your website the green padlock, reassuring customers that they are in a safe location to purchase goods and enter their details.

Not only do your customers prefer secure sites, but Google does too. With Google favouring secure sites, your search engine rankings are more likely improve and your conversion rates more likely to increase. It’s simple!
