Responsive Web Design With Heart
MIGHTYminnow’s pro-bono client Rocket Dog Rescue is in a better position than ever to connect pet lovers with animals needing homes. After first designing the non-profit’s website in 2006, MIGHTYminnow founder Kristin Long and her associate Mickey Kay used Adobe Creative Cloud, including Adobe Dreamweaver CC to turn the organization’s existing WordPress site into a dynamic, fully responsive website. Many features in Dreamweaver CC, including Code View and Live View, the visual editing capabilities of CSS Designer, and the Viewport selector to work collaboratively, save time, and make the overall process of responsive development more efficient and adaptable. To test how the new site performed on different devices, Long used Adobe Edge Inspect CC to navigate the site design in Chrome on her desktop and see the work appear on a range of connected phones and tablets in the studio’s device lab as the devices follow along loading every page she loads in Chrome.
The Rocket Dog Rescue website now successfully supports the organization’s goals of providing comprehensive information for people looking to adopt a pet or just looking to get more information on the organization from any device. For MIGHTYminnow, the site is an example of the efficacy of working with the tools in Creative Cloud to cost-effectively tackle responsive web design. “With responsive design adding complexities and potential costs to the development process, tools in Adobe Creative Cloud support us in utilizing new technologies in an affordable way and empower us to implement new ideas with great efficiency,” says Long.
