  • The Telegraph's hub-and-spokes newsroom has drawn the attention of newspapers worldwide. Department heads sit in the middle of the open floor newsroom. Each of the news sections (business, sports, international…) is lined up on a different ‘spoke’. Adjacent spokes are actually positioned in ‘curves’ of people in charge of either content, or design, production... “Those curves are quite important to us, they kind of work as internal triangles,” said Rhidian Wynn-Davies, consulting editor of the Telegraph. To the sides of the open floor are all the content-producing teams (supplements, magazines, featury content) that are less dependent on news, but also production rooms for video and audio. Upstairs, set apart, sit all commercial and corporate operations.
  • Learn how to optimize your email for mobile devicesSingle column layout (designing for poor HTML rendering)A slim narrow layout (designing for small screens)Super subject line (designing for disabled images too)Super comment tag (designing for disabled HTML)Bullet proof buttons (designing for disabled images too)Graceful degradation (designing for all above)Jim: So let’s look at your current email campaigns and see what we can do to optimize them for mobile.Rather than cater to wider screen monitors, try a slimmer email that will scale larger on the small screen.Use a single column layout to control the flow of the content downward, and slice all your graphics to 100% of the total email width to avoid images from wrapping and scaling like we saw earlier.Add the super subject line at the top of your email campaigns. It’s a friendly piece of copy that will be the first thing that people read, everywhere, with images off, on old devices that render HTML as textAnd as an extension to the super subject line, try the super comment tag. Some devices like Blackberries don’t have HTML email enabled by default, they have Text. When they receive HTML email, they’ll get the raw code. A comment tag at the top of your code can alert the customer that they need to enable HTML email, or you can include an offer… but they’ll be no clickable links.Less copy, big type and big buttons will help, remember that customers are clicking with their thumbs now.Bullet proof buttonsGraceful degradation
