Session Title

Mobile web design that works


John Devanney, Moment

Session Type: Presentation

After years of anticipation, people are finally using the mobile web. As a result, many companies now see mobile as a critical channel of interaction with their customers, and mobile web traffic is even surpassing traditional PC web traffic for some user tasks.

However designing for the mobile web is hardly a straight-forward effort. Users’ behavior is changing rapidly, and the capabilities of mobile handsets and technologies powering the sites are as well.

At Moment, we’ve been actively engaged with major corporations in designing mobile websites that are among the most highly trafficked on the web. In this presentation we’ll share our perspective on the issues and pitfalls encountered by designers involved in these efforts, and how they can be addressed.


John Devanney is a Principal at Moment. He has over ten years of experience in design for mobile, and has led user experience design initiatives in a wide variety of industries from automotive to media and entertainment. John holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Industrial Design from the University of Cincinnati.
