Sometime in the chaos of the last couple months, I was asked to speak at this year’s Future of Web Design in London, on April 30 – May 1. I’m honored to be speaking alongside so many of my web design heroes, and I’m so pumped to be going back to London!
At the conference I’ll be doing a mid-morning slot about Mobile Web Design (following up Jim Coudal! *nervous shaking kicks in*). Thanks to devices such as the iPhone and the G1, the web is getting smaller and more portable each year. Smart clients recognize the need to make their websites and web apps compatible with mobile browsers, and having a handful of tips under your belt about mobile web design will give you an advantage. I’m approaching the subject as a designer who is comfortable and confident with creating interfaces for the web, but feels somewhat mystified when it’s time to make those same interfaces work well in a 320×480 space.
The presentation will be built around a mobile interface I’m working on for SimpleBits. I don’t want to say too much about that now, but just know that there are some amazing things going down here on the North Shore. But more on that later.
In the meantime, can you guys help me out? What do you want to know about mobile web design? I’d love to hear more about what you think, so please drop your suggestions in the comments below, or send me a tweet.
