Accessible mobile content – design trends

When a designer is working with mobile interface design, he or she has got to consider a number of factors; and one of the most critical is that all devices are built differently. Thus, each new visitor will have a totally different experience. The most popular operating systems that are used by users today are Android and iOS. But are there any other operating systems that we could delve into?

In this article I want to share with some of the ideas on design trends used in mobile applications and website layouts. Web users will be really excited about creative interface when accessing their favourite bookmarks from mobile devices or tablets.

A designer should think in terms of his ultimate uses before actually creating a new product. It doesn’t matter what the type of product you’re building, the rule is: a content on a mobile device should always come up on top. When users visit a website, they’ve got reasons for that, therefore it’s not a good idea to make them seek for the information and scroll down endless pages stuffed with useless features. The content is a core of the site. It’s a primary thing that is of users’ interest. As practice shows, interface design is an afterthought.

I expect you know it pretty well that mobile content doesn’t have a lot of space for navigation links. I’d recommend to create a separate web page that would give a list of all the links down a page. When a user taps the link,  he should see the whole content to load. By doing so, you will provide mobile users with easily accessible and user-friendly navigation that they would be happy to use. Besides, as a designer you’ll be able to use many options such as large typography and large-sized images. Such technique perfectly fits mobile apps.

Typography and color schemes have got to be adjustable so that they are well visible even on tiny screens. You can basically keep the fonts normal size but give your mobile users an opportunity to control the font size. In the present days, adjusting color schemes on mobile devices is another trend that’s becoming more and more popular. How does it work? When a mobile user signs up for his account, he can play with the settings and change the background color from dark to light or other way round.

You can just as well get started with a mobile layout and then scale out and display wider on full-screen monitors. If you manage to successfully build a mobile version of website from scratch, it won’t be difficult at all to move to a desktop view.

There will always be new techniques to try and hence, it’s not that easy to find a single clear solution. I would say, it’s all about practicing and checking what works best and what doesn’t give “a feeling” of comfort.
