Inspiring Collection of Responsive Web Designs
Looking into modern web designs in 2013, many designers and developers are starting to venture into web coding standards of Responsive Web.
What is Responsive Web Design?
Responsive web design [highlight color=”#000″ bgcolor=”#eee”](often abbreviated to RWD)[/highlight] is an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
A site designed with [highlight color=”#000″ bgcolor=”#eee”]RWD[/highlight] uses CSS3 media queries, an extension of the @media rule, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment—along with fluid proportion-based grids and flexible images.

A great collection of really good examples of Responsive design. I think that to development or not development Responsive design has become more and more topical during 2013 and sure it will heat up even more during 2014 with more and more traffic (now about 35%) coming from mobile devices.
The ultimate challenge though is not just for website developers to be more familiar with web design technologies but those that control the budgets, commission the website development projects and the ones hired to market such platforms.
But the point that web designers should be more familiar with the new web design techniques such as responsive web designs. Nowadays, huge traffic is coming from hand-held devices such as tablets and smart phones. A responsive web design will work on any device with no problem.
