  1. Luke Wroblewski – Organizing Mobile Web Experiences

    The proliferation of mobile devices has made it necessary to rethink your web experiences. The mobile phone and tablet, along with retina displays, have substantially changed how a user experiences your design. Responsive web design has emerged as a solution in some cases, but even though connection speeds on mobile networks are increasing, performance remains an issue.

    Luke Wroblewski has a wealth of experience with the mobile web. He suggests that the definition of “mobile” itself is blurring as devices continue to evolve. Rather than designing for device specifications, Luke says it’s more important to think about the context in which these devices are being used.

    During his virtual seminar, Organizing Mobile Web Experiences, the audience asked some great questions. Luke joins Adam Churchill to cover some of those questions in this podcast.

    When you talk about “mobile”, does that include both phone and tablet? Is it better to use responsive web design than a separate mobile site? What are the benefits of native mobile applications vs. responsive UIs? How do account for different use cases when employing responsive web design? Does quality become an issue with the code base increasing to make sites adaptive? Should you make decisions on breakpoints based on content or device? Should you design differently for small screens and small windows?

  2. Jobs-to-be-Done concept: 37signals

    "Jason was first introduced to the Jobs-to-be-Done concept by another 37signals team member, Ryan Singer. As the story goes, Ryan saw Clay Christensen describe how he and a colleague uncovered the jobs that a milkshake does in a web video. After watching the video, Ryan went on a search to find out who the “milkshake man” was, and found Bob Moesta and Chris Spiek from the Re-Wired Group."

  3. Karen McGrane – Adapting Your Content for Mobile

    As more web capable devices hit the market, designers need to consider where and how their designs will be seen. Unfortunately, the same consideration isn’t always made when it comes to content. With design changing so much in a multichannel environment, content must be structured independent of how it will eventually look.

    Content touches all aspects of a design. Having presentation independent content allows for it to adapt to different screens and devices. Karen McGrane suggests that having the specifics of how the content will be structured in place first, allows for the freedom and flexibility to make the right design choices.

    Karen says that the advent of WYSIWYG editors shifted focus to the wrong things at the wrong time. Content took a backseat to the overall look of the design. Thinking about content first, over how it will appear, helps ensure you’re communicating the right message.
