responsive layouts

Responsive layouts are specifications for user interfaces that adapt to given size of a device.

With this design approach, UX designers create user interfaces that adapt to different screen sizes and devices.

In responsive design, layouts are built using flexible grid systems, images, and media that adjust dynamically to the size of the screen, providing an optimal viewing experience for users regardless of the device they are using.

The goal of responsive design is to create an optimal user experience that ensures that content is easily accessible and readable on any device, with a focus on usability and accessibility.

It requires designers to think beyond fixed-width layouts and instead create designs that are fluid and adaptable to a wide range of devices and screen sizes.
