Designing Exceptional Mobile Experiences

josh-clark

Full-day workshop • June 16th
Call it the mobile majority: a growing number of companies now see most web visits come from mobile devices. That means the mobile experience is no longer a sideshow; it's the main event, with desktop in the supporting role. Does your design practice reflect that? "Designing for Touch" author Josh Clark takes you on an exploration of the techniques and design thinking you need to make your mobile experiences soar.

This full-day learning session takes a clear-eyed, pragmatic approach to mobile design, replete with practical guidance, rich examples, thought-provoking exercises, and an updated set of guidelines that challenge conventional wisdom.

The day starts with the fundamentals—how handheld ergonomics create a new set of design guidelines—and then explores the emerging UX practices that will put your mobile projects at the cutting edge. Learn how touch changes user expectations and requires entirely new interactions. Explore the possibilities and pitfalls of gestures on the web. Find out how to use mobile sensors for both efficiency and delight, even pushing interaction off the screen entirely. And finally, understand how mobile web browsers play a crucial role in the emerging internet of things, and what that means in your daily work.
