    With an unprecedented increase in mobile phone and tablet usage, we are witnessing a rapid increase in internet users accessing the World Wide Web from these devices. Since a good user experience is paramount to ensure the visitor will enjoy the website, it is necessary to take steps to adapt the website to the various device screen sizes the users use. The same applies to the navigation and interaction on the said website. The flow of content and the whole user experience must feel natural and simple across all web capable devices, which is not particularly easy to achieve. Not so long ago, the go-to method was to create an additional website that would be served to mobile users, which has lately been replaced with a more dynamic approach dubbed Responsive Web Design. The main difference between the two is that the latter takes into account the whole spectrum of different screen resolutions and allows for the website to adjust its content and design accordingly and not just statically serve content specifically designed for a very narrow selection of devices. The focus of the present thesis will be on technologies making up Responsive Web Design, different accepted methods and emerging development guidelines that will be presented in a case study of the ongoing redesign of the mladi.net website. The changes and improvements on the website will be also evaluated.
