Yesterday we discussed best practices for mobile designs and some key focuses for mobile web design. So today we’re going to look at a few mobile sites that do a nice job when it comes to layout and creating a good user experience.


The headphone manufacturer has a mobile site that, in my opinion, is actually designed better than its Internet site. The tasks are simple and defined, and the imagery used keeps the branding message cohesive.

Mobile Flu Portal

Who says the government can’t do anything right? This mobile site, designed to educate users about the flu and prevention, makes finding what the user needs simple thanks to big and graphic touch points on the homepage. The video below highlights the sites features and demonstrates just how easy it is to navigate.


This fast food chain has clearly defined the tasks its users will need: Find out about their food and find their locations. Enough said!

Visit Montana

I’ve never been to Montana, but this site has me considering that option. The navigation is simple and someone certainly thought out what users might be searching for on their mobile device. Also, good placement of all the social sites’ icons.

This is the mobile site of front-end developer and UI specialist Emma Dobrescu. After looking at this site who wouldn’t want to hire her? It has great imagery, easy navigation and just the right amount of information all created with the mobile web in mind.

    These are great examples and you are right about the Quaintology developer. She should be getting work like crazy. You should have some links to the sites though!

    These are great sites which recognize that the needs of mobile users are different. The only thing I wish is that all mobile sites included a link to the non-mobile version -- sometimes you need the additional functionality offered on the main site.
