Each day, device manufacturers ship more than a million touch-screen phones that enable new ways for people to interact with the Web. But when they get to your Web site or application –what kind of experience will people with these devices have? Will they be delighted by your mobile Web experience or frustrated?
In this workshop on Web design best practices for modern mobile devices, Luke Wroblewski will detail how to think about and design for Web organization, actions, inputs, and layout on mobile. Through presentations, collaborative sessions, and lots of examples, you’ll learn how to:
- Use “content first/navigate second” organizational structures optimized for small screens and mobile use cases.
- Design for increasingly prevalent touch interactions with appropriate targets and gestures.
- Construct forms and input fields to make input on mobile easier and more frequent.
- Manage layouts across multiple devices with ruthless editing, device classes, and responsive/flexible designs.
- And more...
Armed with these design best practices and principles, you can make sure people have a great mobile Web experience whenever they visit your site.
