Mobile Web Design Anti-PatternsDave Shea
Mobile design is necessarily about embracing constraints, but sometimes we go too far. We strip down our content to a bare minimum in pursuit of misguided ideals about mobile context. We provide ‘useful’ mobile UI components that immediately proceed to get in a user’s way. We make improper assumptions about a user’s environment. Let’s place some of these mobile design anti-patterns under the microscope and talk about why they don’t work, and what we should be doing instead.
Content Modelling for Responsive Web DesignSteve Fisher
Content modeling is one of my favourite parts of a RWD project. Understanding how to represent content priorities consistently for RWD is like solving a puzzle that keeps changing, and I love puzzles. Content modeling helps us define the content creation, design, and user experience for a new site. It is especially important for the responsive web. Because layout and user context is constantly changing, it's important to make sure content priorities are represented consistently. So grab a sharpie and let's do some modeling!
