Mobile design does not forgive!

Just because someone’s viewing a site on their main PC doesn’t mean they’ll be more tolerant of irrelevant, uninteresting information. Taking the approach of paring your content down also makes it easier to create a responsive design, so your site looks great no matter what device people are using it on, rather than having a separate mobile website.

The internet puts choice and alternatives at their fingertips so capturing and then captivating your visitor is key and the combination of brief copy and sharp design are a recipe for success there.

Whilst web coding may have become more mainstream, too many don’t appreciate that that is only one part of the ‘design’ process. The rest includes things like how different browsers and platforms see things and is too often forgotten about.
