Video Description

What happens when people use a smartphone to connect with your website or application? Are they delighted or frustrated? With more than a million touch-screen phones shipping every day, it’s vital that you design your site to appeal to the mobile crowd. In this video workshop, Luke Wroblewski shows you design best practices that include the organization, actions, inputs, and layout necessary to deliver a satisfying experience to people with modern mobile devices.

  • Design for touch interactions with appropriate targets and gestures
  • Construct forms and input fields to make input on mobile easier and more frequent
  • Manage layouts across multiple devices with ruthless editing, device classes, and responsive/flexible designs


  • That’s just a sample of what you’ll learn with this video. Armed with these design best practices and principles, you can make sure people have a great mobile web experience whenever they visit your site.
