    Your WordPress Product

It’s important that your blog looks it’s best across a wide variety of displays – especially with the huge increase in different device sizes out there. Even though tablets haven’t been popular for that long, there’s already a huge variety of different tablet sizes, whether they’re Android tablets, iPad or iPad mini. Phones too are changing in size constantly, with larger screen sizes and widths becoming more prolific. Instead of keeping your site up to date to suit each format, or using a mobile friendly site – consider using a responsive design instead.

Responsive designs use CSS to automatically resize based on the browser or device size, and ensure that your site looks good no matter where it’s displayed. They save you time, too, and make sure that it’ll still render nicely even on screen sizes that you’d never considered before.

We’ve brought together a collection of some of the best designed, beautifully crafted WordPress themes that use responsive layouts. We hope you find the collection useful for your next blog redesign.
