Full Product Description

The future is mobile. As more and more people are turning to mobile devices, designers and developers are facing new challenges and opportunities. Web design has to adapt. But before it can do so, we have to do our homework — understand the new medium and discover the right techniques and tools to design for it. Our brand new Mobile Book serves exactly this purpose.

When it comes to mobile, there are more open questions than definitive answers. Due to its fragmentation, it's not so easy to understand how mobile market looks and works in general. How to pick the right mobile strategy and select the right approach for your website? What design patterns and what UX techniques can assist you to design quicker and better for mobile devices? What design patterns do you need to be aware when building responsive websites and to optimize the performance for mobile? When you design with mobile in mind, how exactly should your design process be different from traditional design workflow?

Our new book attempts to answer these questions. Well-known experts such as Peter-Paul Koch, Stephanie Rieger, Trent Walton, Brad Frost, Dave Olsen, Josh Clark and Remy Sharp have contributed to the book to present the most relevant and valuable insights. - Smashing Magazine
