March Event: Scrolling With Purpose

  • 10 Mar 2016
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • LeadPages, 251 1st Avenue North #200, Minneapolis, MN 55401

Join us as local author and UX pioneer Karl Fast presents on an approach to navigation on mobile devices where navigation is revealed contextually through scrolling.

Navigation on mobile is difficult. The constraints are severe. As a result, mobile navigation is an impoverished version of the desktop experience. We present an alternative navigation pattern for mobile where navigation is revealed incrementally, and contextually, through scrolling. 

The approach draws from emerging navigation techniques and combines them with ideas from information visualization, such as the bifocal display and magic lenses. The result is a mobile-centric navigation pattern we call scroll-first.

Thank you to our March sponsors, Valere!

There is no dedicated lot, so plan on utilizing street parking or surface lots. Target Field Ramp C is also an option (3 blocks away from LeadPages).
