Designing for Mobile

Time slot: 
March 8th, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Chicago 10
Design and UX

Wired magazine said the web is dead. Well, they were wrong, but it is becoming a lot more mobile. Does that mean that we need to change how we design interfaces? Absolutely.

I've been tackling mobile interfaces and designs and want to share the goods with you! In this session I cover what is means to design for a mobile context and how to create stunning designs that communicate well across devices.

This will be a practical guide for those interested in design and want to know how to best apply their design thinking to the mobile world. It is a pure design session with little mention of code :)

This is one session I'd really love to see. Is there anyone covering adaptive layout techniques (@media queries and the like?)

@media and more

Adaptive layout is most definitely part of this session. Creating an experience that works in the user's environment. :)
