Papercut Interactive began designing websites before social media existed and before you could search the Internet from your phone. Things have changed a lot since then, and they keep changing. We pride ourselves on knowing what it takes to create an impressive, effective web presence and on delivering that for our clients.
We’re a forward-thinking group, and we know that responsive web design is a necessity.

Put simply, a responsive website is elastic. This means that the site will adapt to display properly on any screen, including smartphones, tablets, and whatever the tech companies come up with next. A responsive site is designed and coded to optimize for screen size rather than for a specific device. When you opt for responsive design, you’re opting for a website with better usability and a longer life. In essence, it’s as close to “future-proofing” a site as you can get.
More and more people are searching the web on mobile devices. The number of mobile searches is expected to continue growing, and it’s more important than ever that your customers have a consistent experience, no matter what device they’re using to view your site.
Unlike traditional mobile design, responsive design doesn’t require a separate site. When your customers visit your website from their tablet or smartphone, they will get the same content they see when they visit from their desktop computer at home. Gone are the days of cutting down content for mobile and confusing customers by showing them two versions of your website.
Most importantly, Google recommends and encourages the use of responsive design, and providing your customers with a responsive site can have positive implications for site traffic and rankings.
