Design for Mobile


Today, designing for mobile is an inevitable aspect of web design. Web pages utilizing responsive design can transition into a "mobile" screen size even on a desktop/laptop, and many desktop/laptop devices now include touchscreen gesture control. Many mobile devices can be connected to an external keyboard and mouse, and mobile operating systems have been used for laptop devices.
