Unless your team has been operating under a rock for the past decade, it’s common knowledge that mobile experiences dominate virtually all other digital touchpoints today.

Despite mobile dominance in the world of digital, many major players have yet to find their mobile “sweet spot” — due in part to many leaders’ hesitance to evolve their...
At the Mobile World Conference in 2010, Google’s then-CEO Eric Schmidt announced a major shift in the company’s digital efforts, saying: “Our programmers are doing work on mobile first.

You have your idea and the basic sketch for a final product. Excitement is high. You’re pumped, your team is pumped, the sun shines on your glory.
Getting into the details now. Ran into a few design snags, but the birds are still singing, the sky remains blue, you still give high fives in the office.
