Understanding the Limit

When we want to design something that works on multiple devices, we have to understand limitations each device has. Know what features are available on every device—or at least has an alternative — and avoid what’s not supported in certain device.

Think Mobile First

Just Enough Information at the Right Time

The product fact sheet that’s been working on contains all product’s information from description, dimension, material & finish, color combination code, to shop drawings. This loads of texts will be too much to be shown in a small screen and will be less-informative if we only provide a few.

Every Detail Speaks

Conclusion

Identical experience across devices doesn’t have to be awkward. By understanding the limitations, we know what works and avoid what’s not. Starting from the mobile is both easier and necessary.
