Designing For Micro-Moments Designing For Micro-Moments Suzanna Scacca 2018-08-17T13:50:09+02:00 2018-08-18T02:57:01+00:00 A couple of years ago, Google announced a new mobile-first initiative it wanted web designers and marketers to pick up on. This was our introduction to micro-moments. These are not to be confused with micro-interactions, which are miniscule engagements websites have with visitors when they “touch” key points of the interface. A mouse changes its appearance when a user hovers over a clickable element. A display error appears after a field is incorrectly populated. A checkbox briefly enlarges and changes […]
