Mobile First Design – What is it and why do you need it?


In the past, most web designers approached the desktop side of any project first, while leaving the mobile part as a secondary goal that gets accomplished later. However this is a mistake, there are over 1.2 billion web users on mobiles, and around 25% of these users only have access to their mobiles – not a desktop. Therefore many visitors to your website will only ever see the mobile version, meaning that mobile first design is more important than ever.

Mobile first design for websites is a global trend that will only continue to see growth in the coming years. In fact, Google’s own Eric Schmidt stated in 2010 that Google was going to be taking this approach from now on, going so far as to say “I think it’s now the joint project of all of us to make mobile the answer to pretty much everything.”

With that in mind make sure that when you launch your website it’s designed mobile first, with beautiful and functional layouts on all devices. At Honeypot websites we specialise in mobile first design. Get in touch now to see what we could do for your website.
