Content & Mobile first Movements
Time has taught me that content should not be an afterthought.
Content strategy should be the first thing any design team works on. It needs to be a systematic and thoughtful approach to surfacing the most relevant, effective and appropriate content to meet users needs.
“Design without content is just decoration” Content should be the number one design strategy. However, all too ofter we design a page with filler text and expect it all to make sense in the end. The more complex the interface the more thought should be put into the text first.
Now that we’re forced to be device-agnostic, it’s wise to design to tablet first. Designing and writing a rich experience at 320px width creates too churn, now I design ‘universal first’ aiming to design modular systems that maximize the experience on each screen.
03. Have Fun
We all work because it’s what we have to do. But when we stay positive and enjoy the creation process, we often create a buzz that allows shields to lower and personalities to come out. That’s when amazing ideas come to life. So fall in love with your work. Become highly skilled at what you do. Ingenuity will thrive and the quality of your work will allow your life to become richer.
