Mobile First Design

Why Mobile-First Website Design is Critical?

Chances are you are reading this on a mobile device. 

Despite the tremendous growth in mobile devices, many designers and developers are still designing for desktop computers or big screens on their desks, rather than for the tablet or phone you may be holding in your hand.

What is Mobile-first Design? 

Mobile-first design is a design strategy that says when you create a website or app, you start by designing and prototyping the smallest screen first and work your way up to larger screens. In essence, it’s about delivering the right user experience to the right device.

Mobile-first is Content First

Content becomes the priority in Mobile-first design. This design creates a hierarchy of content users need, use and appreciate. Designing with restrictions and limitations forces the user experience designer to remove unnecessary elements and focus on the essential.

Responsive Design vs Mobile First

Responsive Design starts with the desktop. You start at the maximum required resolution, and then scale down to the smallest screen. Although the content and layout will adjust to fit smartphones and tablets, the navigation, content and download speeds are geared more for your traditional website.
