Reference Websites or “Nachschlagewerke”

A couple of month ago I found Luke Wroblewski’s PDF of the “mobile first” talk (image above) on the internets and was sold on the idea. It makes totally sense to me to start with the smallest component of a layout: the mobile screen and not the website. Since everyone wants to go mobile anyways this seems like a logical step and I seriously wonder if companies actually started doing mobile first, especial since agile layouts become almost inevitable.

So I was delighted to find the work of Valentin Fischer and Wolfram Nagel who started a website called “Multiscreen Experience” (unfortunately only in German). A collection of information all around the multiscreen experience (obviously). I like that this could be a reference site to designers, but much more importantly to clients. I haven’t gone through all of the site but the parts I read gave a nice overview and short explanation of “buzz” words (e.x gamification) that are flying around and that might not be entirely clear to everyone.

Uh and by the way, those guys also worked on the “Design Method Finder” which also falls in the category reference websites.
