The Workshops

Mobile represents a massive shift in how users interact with content and interfaces. Are you ready? Spend a whole day learning how to make the most of mobile.

  • Designing for Touch. The morning session with Josh Clark presents nitty-gritty “rule of thumb” design techniques that together form a framework for crafting finger-friendly interface metaphors, affordances, and gestures for a new generation of mobile apps that inform and delight.

  • Content Strategy for Mobile. The afternoon session with Karen McGrane explores the challenges and constraints of presenting content in mobile interfaces and contexts. Desktop websites have gotten cluttered with useless information that doesn’t meet user needs. Mobile offers an opportunity to re-prioritize messages, rewrite jargon, and remove outdated information. You’ll learn how to use mobile as a wedge to create a better experience for ALL users.
