Responsive web design has become one of the most important trends in the world of digital marketing. As you may already know, responsive design “responds” to the device the user is using to deliver the best possible browsing experience.

Dedicated Mobile Website or Responsive Website

When it comes to corporate web design, many corporations overlook the purpose of branding and focus too much on themselves. If you look at the websites of several corporations, you’ll find that many of them talk about what they do, their past history and what they’re doing now. The atmosphere is often cold, dull and boring. It’s no wonder that these websites spark very little interest. These websites lack a strong brand identity that connects the audience to their companies. If you think about it, there isn’t much that distinguishes similar websites in a given market.
