Efficiency feels good.

To some extent, the joy of efficiency (or at least de-cluttering) is illusory. The pursuit of efficiencies may only make sense over long time scales. Making a decision whether to optimize is fraught.

The New Standard

At Commercial Progression we take a proactive stance in the evaluation and adoptions of new web design standards.  Responsive web design has arrived.  The conversation has shifted.  We no longer question if a site should be designed responsively; responsive design is the new standard.  Technically this translates to a host of best practices for Drupal theming, user experience, and information architecture.

Having a website that responds to each visitor’s device is an essential improvement for every existing and proposed customer facing website.  Optimized visual formatting and intuitive navigation experiences on a variety of devices are now a prerequisite component of every new web project or upgrade.  Your customers expect every website to be easy to use on all of their devices: desktop, laptop, mobile phone, and tablets.
