This Friday, 22nd of May, we’ll be running our fourth workshop at UX London: an introduction to user-centred design, with an Internet of Things twist. The conference begins tomorrow, giving user experience designers three days of inspiration, education and skill development.

Google has announced the expansion of their mobile-friendly ranking signal’s role in the search algorithm. From the 21st of April, Google will not only label ‘mobile-friendly’ sites, but also use this factor to influence how high pages should rank in search results. At Cyber-Duck, we’ve begun advising businesses on how to get ready for the game-changing update, which could have a significant impact on their web traffic. It’s definitely time to consider a responsive web design for your main website.
