As we attempt to map larger, more complex systems to smaller screens, it becomes more and more challenging to help people find what they're looking for. Learn how lessons from architectural wayfinding can guide how you structure your navigation and improve the ease with which your users can explore your site—regardless of what device they're on.

We'll dissect a number of mobile and responsive UI patterns, covering concepts like circulation systems, spatial cues and route visibility. By better understanding the cognitive and perceptual decision making processes that determine how people navigate their environments, you'll be better equipped to build seamless experiences across a multitude of screens and devices.
