Tablet First workshop at Web Visions Chicago

Sep 25

You’ve tried “mobile first” design (or at least you’ve heard of it), but what do you do when the majority of your users spend a good deal of time on a device that is three times as wide as a smartphone: the tablet?

This workshop explores a variation of this approach called “Tablet First,” in which experiences are designed holistically and are prototyped and implemented initially on gesture-based tablets. Because the tablet form factor shares some characteristics both with smaller handsets and larger desklaps, solving problems for these devices lays a good foundation for extending the experience out across the full spectrum of touchpoints.

It’s the user who’s mobile, moreso than the device, and users will turn to the best screen available when they want to get things done. Will your product work on that screen, whatever size, shape, or capabilities it offers? [+]
