Why Mobile-First Web Design?

Modern internet users are browsing the internet on their phone over 70% of the time, so why do a portion of websites still not respond to mobile browsing? At JobHouse Web Services, we are redefining our design process to incorporate mobile-first and responsive web design strategies. In doing so, we hope to build websites that are effective in reaching target audiences on both mobile and desktop browsing. Here are three reasons that JobHouse Web Services has decided to make this change:

LEAVE SPACE TO EXPAND

If a website is built on desktop first, trying to scale the site to be mobile-compatible usually requires content and/or features to be removed for the sake of functionality on a smaller screens and processing systems. Attempting to keep all the functionality and content of a full desktop site may cause the mobile site to feel cluttered, disorganized, or incompatible.

SIZE MATTERS

The drive for mobile first design should be focused on screen time” (source). Most people get their online information from their phone, tablet, computer, smart watch, tv, etc. If we are building websites that are built for desktop while trying to target phone users our process is ineffective (and vice versa).

STAY FOCUSED

Due to the smaller screen size, everything must be refined. On mobile, you must only use the vital information which forces you to streamline your message and pinpoint your target audience. From the mobile design, you can then increase the content on the desktop version to create a robust message for your website. Instead of using your editor glasses to chop out content and features, you get to use your creativity cap to build upon the core values that your website is built upon.
