1 Mobile First & Responsive Web Design David Weedon - UI/UX Designer, Covenant Technology Partners

2 1.2 Billion mobile web users worldwide 25% in the U.S. are mobile-only

3 So Why? Why did smartphone sales take off so suddenly?

4 Why the iPhone? Mainly, ease of use It was designed as a consumer product Blackberry was designed with business users in mind

5 90% of all websites are not mobile ready 50% of business websites are not mobile ready

6 Anywhere from 20%-100% increased conversation rate after optimizing for mobile

7 mobile first.

8 the old way: Design for the desktop first, then scale and trim the content to fit on a phone. (graceful degradation)

9 the new way: Design for the phone first, then expand and enhance the site up to the full sized version. (progressive enhancement)

10 Sounds like you end up in the same place… So, whats the difference?

11 desktop first…

12 mobile first…

13 desktop first: cutting away fat mobile first: adding spice

14 mobile first: constraints (and why they are a good thing)

22 How do we know what to cut out? Know your users and what they need.

23 Not all mobile devices are 320x480. *gasp*

24 There are a wide variety of screen sizes. This isnt a new problem. Weve seen it on the desktop for years.

25 The real problem: Pixel Density

31 Content must be focused. Make it Easy and Fast. Dont make me think! -Steven Krug

32 Optimize for Speed. Delays and hiccups are extremely detrimental to conversion rates.

33 mobile first is about focus. Decide what is important at the beginning of a project.

34 responsive design

35 Responsive design is powered by CSS Media Queries

36 Requires more forethought and planning than traditional layout, especially for the designer(s). Easier to maintain... One Site. One Set of Links. Works best for content focused sites.

37 RWD is probably not the best choice for web apps. Sites with Specific Workflows or a big E-Commerce elements work better with custom tailored mobile sites.
