DesignCast 49: Mobile Web Design Tips & Trends
- By: Wes McDowell
- Nov 11th, 2013
In this episode, we were lucky enough to have Patrick McNeil, the author of The Mobile Web Designer’s Idea Book sit down with Wes for a chat about the latest trends in the ever evolving world of mobile web design. We go over the basics of mobile web design methodologies and frameworks, and we discuss the current state of mobile, and why it’s only getting more and more important going forward. We then talk about some of the more popular trends that are emerging in regards to mobile, as well as some important usability concerns that you would want to address in the design process.

As always, we answer two new listener questions about client holiday gifts, and how to avoid being asked to do valuable web design work at a minimum wage job.
