Mobile interfaces present a whole new world of opportunities and challenges for the designer, requiring laser-like focus on your concept and target audience, extensive knowledge of device constraints and capabilities, as well as a passion for learning and keeping up with the latest trends in technology. This workshop is designed as a primer for individuals with a basic knowledge of visual design who want to make the jump into mobile. We will explore the design and ergonomics behind the most popular mobile devices on the market (iOS & Android), discuss the differences between a native app and a mobile web app, and what it means to take a "mobile-first" approach in the design process.
