Why Mobile First Design Works

Written by Jason Grigsby on

Spending the last few days in New York City for Smashing Conference reminded me of an analogy for Mobile First Design that seems to resonate with people.

If you’ve made your life fit in a tiny New York apartment, you’ll have no trouble when you move to a house in the suburbs.

But going the other way, from a house full of stuff to a tiny apartment, is much more difficult.

Designing for small screens works the same way.
