10 Cool Websites that use Responsive Design Perfectly
Responsive design is one of the biggest web design trends of 2014 that has carried over from 2013 and there’s no sign of it stopping anytime soon. With that in mind you should be on the lookout for a growing number of websites implementing responsive design. If you are unfamiliar with what responsive design is, check out our past article What is Responsive Design?
Below, our talented Front End Developer Zac Knoblauch collected 10 websites that use responsive design perfectly.
1. Philip House
What makes Philip House stand out is its gorgeous minimalistic approach. The website reels you in with the amazing imagery and gives you everything you need without cluttering up your browser window. The responsiveness of it is perfect and lets you have the same enjoyable experience whether you’re using a desktop or mobile device.
2. Long’s Drugs
Long’s Drugs, a family-owned pharmacy based on the East Coast, is definitely eye catching with its vibrant colors and awesome user experience. The best part, this complex website looks just as cool on a mobile device.
Google’s Santa Tracker has been a big hit, allowing people, along with their kids, to track Santa (it's never too early for a site about Santa). The site is full of Christmas spirit with all of its animations which include falling snow, airplanes & trains going by and other various objects moving along the screen (even a UFO!). The cool thing about this site is that it allows you to track Santa on any device.
Ryvita takes advantage of large images to help showcase their products on their webpage. This website grabbed my attention with its cool layout, images, and small animations as you scroll down the page, all of which translate beautifully onto a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
Soelden uses large images of lodges and skiers/snowboarders to attract customers. What caught my eye is how well they translate the large images for mobile devices.
6. Sticky Gram
Sticky Gram is a website that lets you create magnets and cases out of your Instagram pictures. They do a great job at bringing all the visuals from their full site to mobile with the responsive design.
Creating sarcastic shirts that only designers and developers would understand is their specialty, and apparently having an awesome responsive website is too. From 1900px down to 320px UPW’s website is consistent from end to end providing users on any device the same enjoyable experience.
I figured I’d throw in a website that people have actually heard of incase you were doubting the popularity and wide use of responsive design. Microsoft’s website pulls it off well with a very functional and well thought out responsive website.
I would assume that a website that is built around the responsive design trend would be responsive, and I assumed correctly. Dress Responsively is an apparel website specifically showcasing apparel that is related to responsive design.
10. Mijlo Essentials
Mijlo is a premium backpack that is built to last a lifetime. In this little subsite, they’ve put together a collection of creatives’ essentials (things they use daily) as part of a bag branding strategy. The site is in a grid format and works well responsively, letting users have a visual overload of essentials whilst browsing on any sized device.
