Tablets and Hybrids Need Mobile-Optimized Websites, Too! Slides

Slides to my Connect.TECH 2016 and Scenic City Summit talk - Tablets and Hybrids Need Mobile-Optimized Websites, Too! - are now available at SlideShare!

It takes extra work to deliver a truly responsive website. Since larger tablets and hybrids such as iPad Pros and Windows Surface devices can fit the full size of a standard laptop/desktop website, a tempting thought is to save time and deliver to them the exact same experience. This talk may change your mind, elaborating on why that kind of thinking can hamper the user experience and possibly drive people away, perhaps to access your website on a laptop or smartphone, or worse yet to a competitor.

Too Many Fonts...

An example of why too many fonts can be confusing - a re-imagined* Spotify on iOS.

Don't think this is so bad? Check out this quote and article from Nigel French at Adobe Create Magazine:

"A good principle to live by, whether you’re new to typography or a seasoned pro, is to keep it simple. Or to put it another way, don’t use too many fonts. Just as mixing too many colors on your palette will likely result in mud, mixing too many fonts on a page will probably result in a confused message."

* - for demonstration purposes only - not the original app's choice of fonts!
