Designers and developers have been talking about mobile first for a few years now, but it’s time to pivot. What are we trying to say, and what do we want our audience to take away? That’s the formula that should guide our choice of storytelling platform, whether mobile, desktop, VR or social media. In this workshop, we’ll look at specific examples of how the content-first approach has worked effectively, then take some story ideas and prototype content-first strategies.
