Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone has been talking about the mobile web in recent years, and more of us are browsing the web on smartphones and similar devices than ever before. But most of what we are viewing has not yet been updated for mobile presentation. How can designers bring more of the web up to speed with the capabilities of today's mobile devices?

In Mobilizing Web Sites: Develop and Design, author and designer Kristofer Layon addresses that elephant in the room --the many existing web sites that we manage on a day-to-day basis-- and walks through techniques that web designers can use to make these legacy web sites better-suited for mobile viewing. By focusing on content strategy and the mobile UI experience, web designers can use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to design mobile presentations of legacy, standards-based web sites. The techniques of gradual mobile improvement are all that a designer needs to help the existing web be more mobile.

Kristofer Layon is an author, web and mobile app designer, design educator, and conference director who lives in Minneapolis, MN. His first iPhone app, ArtAlphabet, is an early childhood flashcard game that went on sale in the iTunes App Store in 2009. His company, Aesthete Software, LLC, designs iOS applications for clients in a diverse range of fields including medicine, photography, and education. He also teaches iOS app design workshops under the name Two Apps Per Day, and wrote The Web Designer's Guide to iOS Apps (New Riders) in 2010.
