Join us this September as ProductTank NYC and Shutterstock bring to you our first ProductTank debate: Mobile vs Desktop!

Do desktop users still matter when you build a mobile app?

Is it profitable for designers to make feature-rich sites for mobile?

When does Desktop-First make the most sense for product or business?

Do you prefer the Amazon site or the Amazon app?

The Design Debate is on.

We want to go beyond finding out which design strategy is the best. We are coming together to strive for a greater understanding of what’s best for your product or business by assessing the pros and cons of mobile and desktop digital design standards. We are bringing to you opportunities to determine which strategy best suits your company and set up your products for success.

- Get inspired by learning about adaptive design strategies and thinking
- Find out more about the technology and tools available for designers, managers and strategists
- Enjoy free refreshments and snacks during the debate
- After the debate, meet like-minded individuals and network
