How do you typically start when building web pages?
- Mobile first
- Desktop first
- It depends on the project
I was looking at responsive web design projects and noticed that quite a few of them had issues when viewed on a smaller screen. I realized that I’ve been building desktop first and then I try to make it work on smaller screens. Maybe this is because I’m working on a bigger screen and my browser has been defaulting to a desktop view. I’m going to try starting small then going big (it should be easy enough for me to use the toggle device toolbar in Chrome DevTools).
I’m not so much trying to determine or debate a best practice but curious just how many more here default to desktop first. Maybe I’ll find out that my assumption is wrong and more of us designing mobile first.
