YouthNet - Mobile site
Mobile services and information for young people
YouthNet is the UK's first exclusively online charity, providing impartial online support, information and advice to 16-24-year-olds.
We designed a mobile version of its web site for young people.
Most mobile web sites provide a quick information hit but deliberately avoid any great depth. This one was different in that it had to provide full site content through a mobile interface – young people in need of help require full facts regardless of whether they use a mobile phone or a computer.
The information – including over 100 factsheets and a searchable local advice finder database – is set out simply and clearly for the small screen. Colour coding helps people navigate through the site.
It’s a successful design that makes the most of a medium favoured by YouthNet’s target audience.
