Three inspirational developer websites at 240 x 320 px

A hundred million new internet users are coming online in the developing world thanks to the advent of low-cost, internet-connected featurephones such as those running on KaiOS. For the first time ever, users are taking their first steps into the internet on screens as limited as 240 x 320 resolution. Unfortunately their browsing experience will be marred by biased standards of the modern web. As a kind of tribute, I want to highlight five excellent examples of developer websites whose designs scale perfectly down to minimal screen sizes.

Zoe Chew:

Zoe's website is the pinnacle of a modern developer website. Taking a single-column approach, her website scales flawlessly down to our minimum resolution without a single thing out of alignment and not a pixel of horizontal scroll is needed. A text-first, image-lite experience means that loading is lightning fast and there is plenty of content to consume on the homepage alone.

Franco Scarpa:

Franco's site is as minimal and text-centric as it gets with a uniquely vibrant colour scheme, darkmode toggle and fully responsive design. Franco's website loads lightning fast and is user experience first with no tracking cookies, analytics or third-party integrations.

Lyndsey Scott

Lyndsey is rightfully a legend around these parts and her website is nothing short of cosmic. It's a much more maximalist style with plenty of media content and fancy animations that somehow renders absolutely perfectly down to our minimal screen resolution. Not a pixel is out of place on any page even at a tiny screen size!
