When The Elastic Snaps: How To Stretch Mobile Apps To Fit Tablets - Nokia Talk

Jan 7, 2014 · City of Bristol, United Kingdom

FelineSoft are Kindly providing the venue (hosting) the meet-up this month


The Talk from Craig Pugsley, Principal Designer & Jonathan Davies, Senior Visual Designer at Nokia.

“To bring an app designed for a phone to a tablet, you just stretch it out both ways, yeah? Do designers even need to get involved? When we embarked on the journey to bring Nokia MixRadio from Windows Phone to our new super-secret Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, we started with a blank slate, an open mind and an 
obsession to not ‘just scale everything up’. What followed was a story of courage, treading the fine line between conformity for the sake of consistency and differentiation for the need of excitement, and glamorous Middle-Eastern product launches.
We’ll talk about how we harmonised the experience across two canvasses with very different use cases. We’ll argue that the only way to bring a sophisticated phone app to larger screens is to start from scratch. We’ll get down-and-dirty and discuss the techniques we’ve used to force Design into the Agile engineering process. And we’ll show how all this was done by a couple of guys from Bristol, UK.”
