Mobile UX and Responsive Web Design

  • Apr 23, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Responsive Web Design NYC, Special Spring Event @Booker, Presented by Rosenfeld Media

 


 

 

 

 

Mobile UX and Responsive Web Design

NYC April 23rd, Bookers HQ, 19th Floor,

6:30 Networking

7:00 Start

9:00 Concluded

The world renowned mobile UX Expert,  Josh Clark (@globalmoxie) will share his view on mobile user experience and responsive web design followed by a virtual screen-cast panel (Google Hangout)  of cross-country design experts  Aaron Gustafson (author of Adaptive Web Design), Jason Cranford Teague (author of CSS3 Visual Quickstart Guide), and Sara Wachter-Boettcher(author of Content Everywhere: Strategy and Structure for Future-Ready Content). This meet-up is a bit of a taster to a full-Course Training event hosted by Rosenfeld Media (see below)

Topics of Discussion

  • Mobile First and Responsive Web Design
  • What it takes to design the right Mobile UX using Responsive Web Design as a platform
  • Mobile UX best practices
  • Mobile UX design examples
  • Mobile UX process.

We will take this month’s session to focus on user experience design.  We will shake out the reasons why responsive web design is no different than developing  a separate silo’d mobile site with the conversations around how to be get your users to better engage and stay “stuck” on your property.

This session is a quick taster of what you can expect from the full Three-day design training workshop on April 29~May 1st presented by Rosenfeld media focused on a deeper dive and the essentials of Responsive Web Design .

 

Josh Clark (Author of Tapworthy @globalmoxie)

Josh Clark is the founder of Global Moxie. Josh is a designer specializing in mobile design strategy and user experience. When he’s not building friendly interfaces, he writes about them. In Josh’s books and blog, he explores humane software, clever design and the creative process. Josh is the author of four books, including Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps (O’Reilly, 2010), all of which aim to help you harness technology to make your work easier, more beautiful, more awesome.

Josh is a regular speaker at international technology conferences, sharing his insights about mobile strategy and designing for phones, tablets, and other emerging devices.

Before the internet swallowed him up, Josh was a management consultant at Monitor Group in Cambridge, Mass, and before that, a producer of national PBS programs at Boston’s WGBH. He shared his three words of Russian with Mikhail Gorbachev, strolled the ranch with Nancy Reagan, hobnobbed with Rockefellers, and wrote trivia questions for a primetime game show. In 1996, he created the uberpopular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)

Josh holds a B.A. from Harvard College in Cambridge, Mass. He’s headquartered at Studiomates in Brooklyn, NY.

 

Aaron Gustafson (Author of Adaptive Web Design, @AaronGustafson)

AaronGustafsonis the Founder and Principal Consultant of Easy Designs, a web development consultancy. He is Group Manager of the Web Standards Project (WaSP) where he has spearheaded both Web Standards Sherpa and a small business outreach effort.

Jason Cranford Teague is the Managing Director of UX  for Forum One, an interactive agency that helps build a positive future through the creative application of technology. He has been at the forefront of Web design for over 16 years as a designer, writer and speaker.

Jason is a prolific writer, with numerous books and articles published on digital media and culture including, CSS3 Visual Quickstart, Fluid Web Typography and Speaking in Styles: The Fundamentals of CSS for Web Designers. He is also a semi-regular columnist for Webdesigner Depot and GeekDad.

Jason has also worked with the W3C CSS Workgroup, Yuri’s Night: The World Space Party and was the Director of Web Design Standards for AOL. He recently served as the Design Manager for Marriott International eCommerce, where he helped relaunch the marriott.com, the 7th largest transaction site on the Web.


Sara Wachter-Boettcher (Author of Content Everywhere: Strategy and Structure for Future-Ready Content @sara_ann_marie ).

I live in the little colonial city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where I buck the local Amish tradition by spending my days making, reading, and writing things on the internet.

Before trekking out on my own, I spent a half-dozen years working in agencies – mostly at Off Madison Ave, where I started as a web writer and became the director of interactive content and marketing strategy. Over the years I launched the agency’s content strategy practice, grew the discipline into a core offering, built a department, and joined the senior management team.

Prior to my time in agency-land, I wrote features for magazines and newspapers and developed curricula to educate kids about sexual abuse. The variety’s been nice, but really it’s all the same idea: delivering meaningful, useful information to people who want and need it.

I’m clear-headed, hard-working, and driven equally by perfectionism and realism. I’ve got a big mouth and a busy brain. And I like helping good people make their products and services even better. Want to get specific? Download a resume, or visit my LinkedIn.

Responsive and adaptive design is about more than making sites look good on mobile. It's about creating a web that's flexible, accessible, and usable—and to do it right, we've got to work together:

Code must consider performance and accessibility while maintaining your design system and messaging

That's why we're offering a three-day, in-depth studio in New York that weaves together content strategy, design, and development to form a complete look at what it takes to plan, write, design, and code for responsive and adaptive experiences—all led by the dream team of Aaron Gustafson (author of Adaptive Web Design), Jason Cranford Teague (author of CSS3 Visual Quick start Guide), and Sara Wachter-Boettcher(author of Content Everywhere: Strategy and Structure for Future-Ready Content).
