In the last year we've learned something that we suspected, but never really knew about mobile, great mobile design sells. But great mobile design doesn't start in Photoshop, it starts by understanding the users, the business goals, the intended devices and a million other tiny variables. Who better to solve these problems than the designer?

In this workshop we will deconstruct a variety of successful mobile experiences from the old green screens to today's hottest iPhone apps. We'll identify what works in the mobile context and why. But more importantly we'll learn how we can design incredible mobile experiences for today and for tomorrow.

There is a lot more in my O'Reilly book: Mobile Design & Development (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596155445/)

  • Enterprise mobility is what Internet was a couple of decades back for enterprises. It's about making sure that all the investments that an enterprise has made in IT over the years are accessible to employees wherever they are. And they are away from their desk most of the time in the modern work environment. Enterprise mobility needs to be looked as a base foundation of the enterprise's digital agenda. Both inwards looking, targeted at employees and external, targeted at enterprise's digital consumers. http://www.inkattech.com/portfolio/enterprise-mobility/

  • Discussion What do you want to learn today? • Is it to create visual experiences? • Is it to take advantage of the mobile opportunity? • Is it to figure out how to make sense of this new medium? • Is it something more? • All of the above?
  • What is Mobile Design?
  • JARGON ALERT Mobile Design The creation of user experiences for the mobile context.
  • It doesn’t start with Photoshop
  • Why Mobile?
  • What’s Next?

  • Needs & Goals
  • JARGON ALERT Needs The circumstances in which something is necessary, or that require some course of action.
  • Abraham Harold Maslow (April 1, 1908 – June 8, 1970) was an American psychologist. He is noted for his concept- ualization of a "hierarchy of human needs", and is considered the founder of humanistic psychology.
  • JARGON ALERT Goals The object of a person's ambition or e ort; an aim or desired result
  • Te ls oa ch sG nic es al Sweet sin G oa Spot Bu ls User Goals
  • JARGON ALERT Neurolinguistic Programming A model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and the subjective experiences underlying them.

  • Exercise Needs & Goals • Let’s examine BBC • What human needs does the BBC serve? • What are the goals of the BBC’s audience? • Does the BBC utilize neurolinguistic programming models? If so, how? • How do we document our findings?
  • Context
  • JARGON ALERT Context The circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.
  • Context with a capital C Context is how the user will derive BIG C value from something they are currently doing. In other words, the understanding of circumstance. It is the mental model they will establish to form understanding.
  • The mode, medium, or context environment in which we little c perform a task or the circumstances of understanding. • our present location • our device of access • our state of mind
  • My present location. Physical My physical context will Context dictate how I access information and therefore how I derive value from it.
  • My device of access. Media The media context isn’t Context just about the immediacy of the information we receive How to engage people in real time.
  • Our present state of Modal mind. Context • Where should I eat? • Should I buy it now or later? • Is this safe or not?

  • WEBSITE Experiences that provide the user with simple informational data.
  • WIDGETS Experiences that are based on an existing multi- platform framework.

  • WIREFRAMES
  • PROTOTYPING
  • DIFFERENT IA FOR DIFFERENT DEVICES?
  • Exercise Designing a Mobile Information Architecture • Lets build a mobile wireframe for the BBC • Sketch out an IA for both touch and traditional devices. • What are the primary navigation items? • How can you can you “tease” content? • How are they di erent? How are they the same?
  • THE DESIGN MYTH
  • Back Title New Content Navigation
  • Mobile Design
  • The Tent Pole The business goal of a tent-pole production is to support or prop up the losses from other productions. However, to create a tent-pole production, the creators involved must make an artistic work that they know will appeal to the largest possible audience, providing something for everyone.
  • vs.
  • Best Possible Experience In mobile development, the risks and costs of creating that tent- pole product are just too high. This lesson is so easily seen through bad or just plain uninspired mobile design. Asking creative people to create uninspiring work is a fast track to mediocrity.
  • vs. iPhone The Rest
  • Elements of Mobile Design | CONTEXT | MESSAGE | LOOK & FEEL | LAYOUT | COLOR | TYPE | GRAPHICS
  • Context Who are the users? Where are the users? What do you know about them? Are they in a public space or a private space? Are they inside or outside? What type of behavior can you assume or predict about the users? Is it day or is it night? What is happening? Why will they use your app? What are the circumstances in which What value will they gain from your the users will best absorb the content content or services in their present you intend to present? situation? When will they interact? How are they using their mobile Are they at home and have large device? amounts of time? Are they at work Is it held in their hand or in their where they have short periods of time? pocket? Will they have idle periods of time How are they holding it? while waiting for a train, for example? Open or closed? Portrait or landscape?
  • Message What you are trying to say about your site or application visually? Your message is the overall mental impression you create explicitly through visual design. How someone will react to your design? If you take a step back, and look at a design from a distance, what is your impression?
  • Look & Feel Look & Feel is used to describe the appearance As in “I want a clean look and feel” or “I want a usable look and feel.” The problem is: As a mobile designer, what does it mean?
  • Layout How the user will visually process the page The structural and visual components of layout often get merged together, creating confusion and making your design more di cult to produce.
  • Color The most common obstacle you encounter when dealing with color is mobile screens. When complex designs are displayed on di erent mobile devices, the limited color depth on one device can cause banding, or unwanted posterization in the image.
  • Typography How type is rendered on mobile screens: • subpixel-based screens • A subpixel is the division of each pixel into a red, green, and blue (or RGB) unit at a micro- scopic level, enabling for a greater level of antialiasing for each font character or glyph.
  • Typography How type is rendered on mobile screens: • pixel density or greater pixels per inch (PPI) The pixel density is determined by dividing width of the display area in pixels, by width of the display area in inches.
  • Graphics Use of images that are used to establish or aid a visual experience. Graphics can be used to supplement the look and feel, or as content displayed inline with the text. • Iconography • Photos & Images
  • Different Screen Sizes Mobile devices come in all shapes and sizes. Choice is great for consumers, but bad for design. It can be incredibly di cult to create that best possible experience for a plethora of di erent screen sizes.
  • The Right Device The truly skilled designer doesn’t create just one product—they translate ideas into experiences. The spirit of your design should be able to be adapted to multiple devices. The days of tent-poles are gone.
  • Exercise Design Critique • Lets pick on the BBC one last time... • Does the current design address context? If so how? • What message does it convey? • What about the look & feel? • What about layout? • What about color & type? • What about graphics?
  • Web Apps vs. Native Apps
  • The Ubiquity Principle
  • JARGON ALERT Ubiquity Principle The easiest it is to produce quality content and services for the largest available market will always win.

  • Change occurs because there is a gap between what is and what should be. — Craig McCaw
  • the mythical “Future-Phone”
  • Mobile Web Dev
  • Using Web Standards
  • Multiple Mobile Browsers Designing and developing for multiple mobile browsers simultaneously is a challenge, but not an impossibility. It requires looking at your designs and code from many contexts. Being able to visualize how your designs will be rendered on a variety of devices in your head, as you lay down code.
  • Progressive Enhancement
  • LAYOUT
  • Fixed vs. Fluid
  • Multiple vs. Single Column Layouts
  • DEVICE PLANS
  • Class A Browsers • Excellent XHTML 1.0 support • Good HTML5 support; specifically, the canvas element and o ine storage • Excellent CSS support, including most of CSS Level 2.1 (scores 90 percent or higher on the ACID2 test) and the majority of CSS Level 3 (scores 75 percent or higher on the ACID3 test) • Support for web standards layouts, including absolute positioning, floats, and complex CSS-based layouts • Support for image replacement techniques
  • Class A Browsers • Excellent JavaScript support • Ability to toggle the display property • Support for DOM events, including Ajax • Considered comparable to a “desktop-grade” browser
  • Class B Browsers • Excellent XHTML 1.0 support • Good CSS Level 2.1 support (75% or higher on the ACID2 test) • Padding, border, and margin properties are correctly applied • Can reliably apply colors to links, text, and background • Supports image replacement techniques • Can support complex tables—not necessarily nested tables • Setting a font size of 10 pixels or more produces readable text • Has limited JavaScript support, min. toggle the display property
  • Class C Browsers • Good XHTML 1.0 support • Limited CSS Level 2.1 support (scores 50 percent or higher on the ACID2 test) • Limited or no JavaScript support
  • Class D Browsers • Basic XHTML • Limited CSS support (CSS Level 1, or does not recognize cascading) • Minimum screen width: 120 pixels • Hyperlinks may not be colorable by CSS • Basic table support: 2 or more colspan and rowspan may not be supported • No JavaScript support • “Width” expressed as a percentage may be unreliable
  • Class F Browsers • No (or very unreliable) CSS support • Poor table support or none at all • Basic forms: text field, select option, submit button • May not be able to support input mask on fields • No JavaScript support
  • The Device Matrix Class Markup CSS Javascript Class A XHTML, XHTML-MP, HTML5 CSS2, CSS3 Great, includes DHTML, Ajax Class B XHTML, XHTML-MP CSS2 (Decent) Limited, some DHTML Class C XHTML, XHTML-MP CSS2 (Limited) Limited Class D XHTML-MP CSS2 (Basic) None Class F XHTML-MP, WML None None
  • MARKUP
  • XHTML The same XHTML we use in web browsers every day has worked in most mobile browsers for over five years.
  • XHTML-MP A mobile version of XHTML is supported on virtually all modern mobile browsers. It is practically the same as XHTML Basic.
  • HTML5 While HTML5 is still being defined, it is only supported by a handful of Class A browsers.
  • CSS
  • CSS-MP
  • THE BOX MODEL The box model is one of the key concepts of CSS design, and therefore the first thing that tends to go wrong in mobile devices. The box model is the imaginary box that is around every element in your markup.
  • THE BOX MODEL Class A Class B Class C Class D Class F Box Model Great Good OK Poor Fail
  • SELECTORS The selector is used to tell which markup elements it should apply rules to— basically, what makes CSS work to control the presentation.
  • SELECTORS Class A Class B Class C Class D Class F Universal Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Type Yes Yes Yes Yes Flaky Descendent Yes Yes Flaky Flaky No Child Yes Yes Flaky Flaky No Adjacent Yes Yes Flaky No No Class Yes Yes Yes Yes Flaky ID Yes Yes Yes Yes Flaky Simple Attribute Yes Flaky No No No Advanced Attribute Yes No No No No Pseudoselector Yes Flaky No No No
  • FONTS & TEXT The typography options on mobile devices can be less than stellar, but like most things CSS-related, we are seeing mobile browsers move closer to their desktop cousins in this respect.
