Admittedly, I wasn’t sure if I was going to take the time to write about the importance of good website design. Truth be told, I assumed it was universally understood that design is important.

It’s no secret, mobile web usage is here and here to stay. Mobile devices like cell phones and tablets are ubiquitous and people often own more than one. The convenience of the hardware created an expectation of software convenience, and this convenience is fueled by speed and accessibility.
Responsive web design solves many of the challenges of speed and accessibility by considering the needs of the mobile community at the website’s conception.
