Well, I’m doing it again: writing a second book about mobile design! This time, it’s about mobile-optimizing web sites. Entitled Mobilizing Web Sites: Develop and Design, it will be part of an exciting new series on Peachpit Press.
The book will be based on a case study, a sample web site I’ve designed that uses a typical fixed-width grid. What are some ways to mobile-optimize such a web site? And despite loving the idea of “mobile first”, what about “mobile last”? Are web designers stuck in the past with a fixed-width layout until they redesign a site from scratch?
The answer is no; there are many options in between doing nothing and starting all over with a completely new design. This book is about how to get into mobile design with what you already have: a standard-based design that was always meant to be responsive, and intended to adapt to new opportunities as they arise.
