Responsive Web Design for Professional Services

Birmingham web design agency stunn are pleased to announce the launch of a new corporate web site for Cheltenham based PR firm, Gravitas. Our brief was to create a corporate web site with contemporary values, maintaining brand elements from Gravitas’ wider identity while bringing the web site up to modern standards.

We created a responsive web site, which reshapes and reconfigures itself intelligently depending on the device an screen resolution being used to view it. This brings it’s own challenges, as the creative is not focused on the desk top, but must consider small and large, landscape and portrait screens. This flexible approach takes the user away from the annoyance of pinch zooming and inferior mobile / smart phone Internet experience and negates the need for multiple style sheets to support the differing device requirements.

With mobile internet traffic typically hitting 25-30% it was seen as vital that the brand be properly represented on the likes of iPad and iPhone, we’ve also accounted for the rise in the “phablet” and mini tablets, with a set of rules catering for iPad mini, Samsung galaxy note, etc.

While Stunn are regularly creating responsive framework deigns for ourselves and our customers, we’re please that Gravitas were the first professional services company to have benefited from this very modern web design standard. The site remains compliant; though features some advanced animation and filtering techniques using HTML5 and CSS3, further future proofing the web site for what is a creative and forward thinking PR company.

Stunn has 4 further responsive web sites launching this month. Each of the sites runs on Stunn’s own content management platform, which now features some of the most simple to use and fully functioned integrated blogging tools available.
