Designing and building a website takes a lot of work. To be successful you need those with design skills, and those who can do web development. An ideal team has people with the following skillsets:

  • Graphic Design
  • Front End Coding – HTML/CSS/JavaScript
  • Back End Coding – PHP (or similar)/SQL/SysAdmin

It’s no secret that some of the best websites have poorly regarded designs. Craigslist and Google’s home page come to mind. They are built with limited attention to visual appeal, and yet are among the most valuable properties on the web. In some cases functional utility trumps aesthetics.

To-do list apps are very popular because of their pragmatic application to everyday life. They’re also fun to build and design offering plenty of room for ingenuity.

There are now more app developers than we have ever seen in the short history of smartphone devices. Google’s newest Android OS coupled with Apple’s advancing technology makes for a force to be reckoned with. Although mobile interfaces can borrow traits from the web, they can’t be perfectly emulated because mobile apps rely on touch-based interactions.

I want to share a few mobile interface patterns to help designers craft purposeful applications that run smooth and behave as expected. This is no easy task and it requires a lot of practice to figure out the best methods for any individual application. But I suggest looking for these interfaces in other applications to determine how they feel and behave on a typical device.
