Creating a responsive design can cost 20% to 30% more than a site designed solely for a desktop web browser (the price of progress).
This additional cost can be attributed to the extra effort the interface designer makes to design the site’s appearance and function on the various devices, which in turn will have to be programmed by the programmer.
Remember, when you’re starting a new website from scratch, so is the web designer.
