No matter which device you use, Capital ID’s solutions are responsive. You will always see exactly what you need to see to do your work effectively.

What is responsive (web) design?

Responsive web design means that the layout, but also e.g. the typography, adjusts to the size of the screen used to view the website. The goal is to offer a consistently optimal user experience on both desktops and mobile devices. Depending on the available screen area, relevant content is selected and users must be able to navigate with ease, regardless of what device they use. Images, scaled relatively, are made larger or smaller as necessary. The layout can also account for the screen orientation.

How does it work?

No matter how commonplace this functionality is, setting it up takes time. The (landing) pages must be set up with tilting points. Capital ID has opted for the Foundation Framework developed by Zurb in order to properly support this behaviour. Foundation employs the “mobile first” principle, which starts with the smallest screen and then scales up the design and the available features as the size of the device being used increases. The advantage of this method is that it directs focus towards the essential content, which is displayed properly no matter what.
