Adaptive design refers to the design of the graphical user interface (GUI), which adapts to different screen sizes.

What is adaptive design?

It refers to the design of the graphical user interface (GUI), which adapts according to the different screen sizes. This is used by designers in GUIs, such as web pages, that need to function on devices of different sizes. In addition, it also uses several fixed layout formats: when the system detects the browser size, it selects the layout most suitable for the screen (for example, a smartphone).

Difference adaptive and responsive design

There is also responsive design. These are two similar designs, both of which adapt to different screen sizes. The main difference between the two is that in adaptive design, the content follows a fixed layout size while in responsive design it moves dynamically. In other words, adaptive design uses a few fixed layouts and selects the best layout for the screen size based on this. Responsive design uses a single layout, which is adapted to the screen size. As a result, adaptive design often creates six designs based on the six standard screen width, which is standard practice for most designers.

Why is it important?

The big advantage is that it gives designers the option to tailor-make a solution. In this way, the graphical user interface (GUI) is optimally displayed in different screen sizes. The downside, however, is that it’s expensive, as the designer has to create about six separate layouts. Another drawback is that it does not provide an optimal solution for users who do not have a standard size screen. Nevertheless, as it remains one of the options when presenting output that would otherwise be unsuitable for any other approach, no designer should discount its value.
