The usage of mobile devices has surpassed the usage of desktop computers. Even organizations are more committed to their projects and commercialization options based solely on mobile front-end performance. Mobile usage is growing rapidly. However, are there standard guidelines for building mobile sites? Is it possible to transform an already existing desktop site into a mobilefriendly site? This research answers these questions while transforming an existing user interface into a mobile- friendly site and offers detailed instructions for doing so. It presents standard guide- lines for future refactors, offers specific design guidelines for building such a design ground up and establishes how this can be a continuum for creating mobile-friendly designs.

Keywords: Mobile-first design, Front-end design, Responsive web design, User experience Architecture, User Interface
