Mobile First Web Design
Beginning this year, the majority of US websites are projected to get more traffic from smart phones and tablets than from desktop and laptop computers. It's time to rethink the way we plan and build websites. Mobile First is a web design technique that flips traditional web design on its head. Instead of designing the traditional, full desktop/laptop website first and then adapting for mobile, we focus on delivering essential information and tasks up front — and that helps all users. Whether you're planning a mobile app, mobile-friendly alternative website, or a responsive website, thinking mobile first can streamline the design process and result in an optimized experience for all users.
