Why One Website Design?
WordPress sites at UAMS use a single, standardized theme, providing a visible and recognizable identity. The header and footer as well as the colors, fonts, and many other design elements are controlled by the theme. In addition to providing a consistent user experience, the theme allows website editors to concentrate on creating content, with a minimal amount of training.
If your site is good on a mobile device, it translates better to all devices. More importantly, though, is that the mobile-first approach is also a content-first approach. Mobile has the most limitations, screen size and bandwidth to name a few, and so designing within these parameters force you to prioritize content over design elements.
The mobile-first approach leads to a design that’s more content-focused, and therefore user-focused. The heart of the site is content — that’s what the users are there for.
WordPress powers more than 40% of the web — a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress.
