Anna Dahlstrom - Device Agnostic Design: How to get your content to go anywhere
There was a time when we did glossy page designs and when those designs were pretty much what we saw in our desktop browsers. With the introduction and rise of smartphones, tablets, phablets there isn't one view of our designs anymore.
Instead, what we create needs to be able to adapt in a way that is suitable for the device as well as where and how it’s being used.
With responsive design we've learnt the basics of how to adapt content, interactions and layouts so that it works across devices. But with further developments in technology and screens, our content is going to go anywhere. As a result we need to move away from designing for specific devices to solutions that are device agnostic. For us as UX designers this means means letting content rather than devices guide layouts, and also increasingly moving away from designing and wireframing pages to focusing on the modules that those views are made up of. But there are other aspects to consider in device agnostic design.
In this talk Anna will walk through why device agnostic design matters, what it means and how we go about it.
