  • Sneak peak of my new site | In usability we trust
    from being just a blog to being the platform where I market myself and my services Another important reason is that the current design feels dated and frankly needs a radical makeover Responsive design Responsive Design is the big thing in web design right now and I ve used that approach in the new design What it means is that the design will adapt to the context where it s displayed So you get a slightly different design depending on if you re watching it on a big screen on a tablet or on a mobile device The concept of Responsive Design was popularized by Ethan Marcotte who s written an excellent book called Responsive Web Design about it Using it on a desktop browser Using the site on a big screen it has generous margins and have a main content area as well as a sidebar The site when viewed on a desktop browser Tablets and mobile devices On Tablets the design is mostly the same The only difference is that the outer margins are a bit tighter and that the main content area is less wide On mobile devices there s even less margins the navigation is moved below the site logo and the content area fill up the whole width Also the sidebar is moved to below the main content area The site viewed on iPad and iPhone When does it launch I expect to launch the new design during next week so keep an eye open for that I also plan to write an article on the principles of responsive design So what are your thoughts on the redesign Don t hesitate to share them in the comments News Previous post UX Design and Web Development Next post The new site is up and running Leave

  • Designing for Mobile First by Luke Wroblewski | In usability we trust
    how to design for mobile applications He talks about how to organize content and how to design different actions on a touch device He also talks about things to consider when designing for input and how to design for different devices and different viewports Lots of practical advice and current best practices All in all the class introduces the mobile web area and gives a pretty broad picture of what it is where it s heading and what to think about when designing for it About Luke Wroblewski Luke is a very knowledgeable speaker He s written two popular web design books Web Form Design which I ve reviewed back in 2008 and Site Seeing A Visual Approach to Web Usability He s the co founder of Bagcheck and former Chief Design Architect at Yahoo These last years Luke has been busy talking and writing about the mobile web and he has a new book coming up this fall called Mobile First So what is Mobile First The approach that Luke is advocating is to think about the mobile web experience first Because of the inherited restraints of the mobile platform you are forced to focus on the most important stuff and omit the rest The screen is small the input limited and the attention of the user is often shorter than on the desktop Then when you move to the desktop experience you can bring this knowledge and focus with you It will help you stay focused and not trying to cram content and functionality into every bit of empty space The video format The quality of the video is mostly good It s in mp4 format and both the picture and sound are crisp except for sometimes when one of the participants are talking Then it sometimes sounds like the person is sitting in a jar talking you can still here what they say though Although the quality of the video is pretty good my biggest concern is with its format This master class comes in 14 different video files that you can either watch online or download for offline use Watching them online is pretty straight forward you have a chronological list of the videos and watch them one after the other No problems there The problem started when I wanted to watch them on my iPad I downloaded the files imported them to iTunes and transferred them to the iPad Now instead of being ordered chronological they were ordered alphabetically Because of this I had to manually edit the meta information of the files something that s a bit awkward and time consuming I think this should have been done to the files before publishing them My verdict My biggest take aways from this master class is why Mobile First is a sensible approach but also good ideas on how to design navigation for mobile platforms There were also some very interesting statistics about how huge the mobile web is really becoming If you re designing
