The client came to us looking to make his site responsive. He wanted to keep the existing design, but add responsive features so that the site would be easy to navigate and view on a mobile phone or tablet.
We used a Genesis Framework theme called Outreach Pro as the underlying foundation and tweaked the design to replicate the look of his current site.
Using an existing responsive theme as a base enabled us to quickly style the site without having to custom code all of the responsive features, saving many hours of work for us and hundreds of dollars for the client.
Here is what the base theme looks like:
The end result provides the client with the design he wants, but updates his website to be readable on a wide variety of devices, everything from full screen monitors to tablets and smartphones.
