Right now, few things are hotter topics that mobile in the design world. With the burst of smartphone and tablet technology, the mobile design landscape has just exploded.

With this new landscape comes a new way of thinking about design. It’s no longer about filling every pixel on the screen and implementing a multitude of different functionality.

The smaller screen demands that we hone our functionality down to it’s bare essentials. It means letting the content drive what we do, instead of putting the actions first. And it requires we rethink the basics of interaction, as touch gestures offer more flexibility than the mouse pointer.
