Darren is the digital designer here at Real Life Digital. He handles our small to medium size projects from their very conception right through to implementing them in code on the final product. He loves pushing the boundaries using new HTML5 and CSS3 technologies. Darren's background is in print design and he has a knack for translating static pixel-perfect designs in to organic, responsive websites and applications. He is known around the office for his prominent beard, his insatiable thirst for decent beer (not in work hours), his passion for obscure hip-hop and his bizarre love affair with chilli sauce.
1. Making “some stuff” responsive
Making some stuff responsive is the equivalent of only building one brick wall on a house - you just wouldn’t do it. Except, clearly, some people do because it's rife out there.
We’ve actually seen websites where the homepage does some very basic responding to pass the test, but every single other page of the site wasn’t responsive. Not even the “about” page. Just because the home page passes Google’s mobile responsive test doesn’t mean that the whole site passes. Any page that you add to your site which isn’t responding properly will bring down your overall Google ranking score, even if you're searching using a desktop or laptop. Meaning your nice responsive home page still isn't doing you much good.
All we can say is... just - NO! You deserve better than that.
