The ubiquity of smartphones has driven many companies to adopt a Mobile First strategy. However, at its core, Mobile First is just a UX strategy, not a holistic approach to customer experience. Only focusing on mobile solves for a relatively limited scope of a customer’s needs. Context First seeks to understand the complete environment surrounding the customer: who is using it, where they are using it, and what their relationship is to the brand. By applying this broader, device agnostic lens, experience designers can deliver a customer experience that is highly personalized and more responsive to each phase in a customer’s decision journey.
