    Hi, I would like to learn web design for the mobile web. Ideally proficient in design to be able to fundamentally understand and provide mobile seo services as well.


    Can some one please be so kind in providing a curriculum guide as to what to lean and in what order?


    Any references and resources appreciated. Thank you.

    "Mobile" design in one form is essentially just "Responsive" design. The css (and possibly javascript) changes the layout based on min/max widths and uses a blend of fixed and relative measurement. This is the less straight-forward way of doing design for mobile devices.

    The other way is to use your server to send them off to dedicated mobile sites. This is open to how you implement it, so you could use the UA/Browser size to send them to device specific pages. Has the upside of being small in css and less chance of problems trying to accommodate everything. The downside is that you have to do separate updates to it.


    My suggestion: Check out smashingmagazine. They may have some tips/articles on mobile design.

    If you want to create site for mobiles then you can do that easily. If you use wordpress to design your site then you can do that easily by using some tools that will do it for you.
