Faster, better, stronger: redesigning for mobile

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

I rebooted the PainScience.com design! Can you tell? Probably not. It’s visually subtle.

But it’s faster. A lot faster.

And the new design is always at its best on smaller screens, with larger windows actually making some sacrifices to accommodate the swarms of mobile users. Over 70% of my readers are now using tiny screens. 😮 Many of the remainder are on tablets. Does anyone even use full-size computers anymore? Only about 10%, according to my stats! And nearly all of those are tiny laptops.

It’s a brave new small-screen world. The web is now officially something most people are squinting at. Except here, where the type is significantly larger than average for mobile users, along with a buttload of other reader-friendly choices. You’re welcome.

You can read more about this design update on my personal blog, if that kind of thing amuses you. The project was rather rushed and radical — despite the fact that it doesn’t actually look all that different.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
