I’ve been unable to wrap my head around mobile-first since first trying to implement it last week. Before this I’ve been working on basic designs and working from desktop backwards with decent results. As my designs are mainly all flex-box /grid it means that the page naturallty transitions into mobile design nicely with just a few media queries.
Would I be half correct saying mobile first is mainy for more complicated designs were you have multiple sections of grid/flex and not just one big flex-box?
For example here’s two of my recent complete challenges Social-proof-challenge & my Chat-app-challenge. Both are super simple but I fail to see why working mobile first would be any better and I’m assuming this is because they’re simple designs?
I can certainly see how with more complicated designs such as This youtube follow-along mobile first build would be better with mobile-first.
Any comments on this would be super helpful.
