What is Responsive Web design?
Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform, and orientation.
The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size, and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.
With Divi, each website looks great on every device. Your website is useless if it only looks good on a large 27″ monitor, and squishes up on the mobile. Never a problem.

Esther L. Warda, Designer
I started working on the internet in 1996. I instantly saw the endless possibilities of choosing almost any career relating to on-line design, marketing, and sales.
I began with a website for a group of friends that was a collection of everyone’s favorite recipes. It was a freebie, hence the perfect job to learn on. I learned as I built. I would watch tutorials along the way whenever it was time to go to the next step. Then the need came to create artwork. Logos, graphics, etc. Enter Photoshop and a ton of tutorials.
The first four or so websites were for fun, family, and friends. No stress. Then my first request from a “real” client came along, and since then (20 years ago) I haven’t had the need to look for work nor advertise. It was one client referral to the next.
Met Richard Morrison a few years ago watching a Youtube tutorial on WordPress. We began working together and quickly made the perfect team. Rich is a coder, programmer, and robotics specialist. Whatever I used to have to outsource, now I can do in-house. Before Rich, there were many jobs I had to turn away because they were too techie. Since working with Rich, we haven’t turned a job away in 3 years. I do the design and consulting on the branding and “the look” and Rich does the coding and programming. A perfect fit. What I can’t do, Rich can do, and what Rich can’t do, I do.
We special in WordPress from simple landing pages to full e-commerce websites custom built for our clients. I also specialize in all the Adobe programs from Photoshop to Illustrator and all in between.
I also do a lot of print work such as business cards, brochures, banners, etc. That includes the creation of the client’s branding. Basically, all the print and web work needed to have an on-line presence and/or business.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and retention. Please tell free to look through our testimonials as our clients share their experiences.
Thanks for reading this far. 🙂 I’m passionate about what I do and would love the opportunity to connect with you and give you a free quote. Please don’t hesitate to call or write with any questions you have.
