Have you ever noticed that mobile optimization differs from mobile design? Example – the image rendered in this post is from iphone 5 rendering of a mobile optimized website. If you visit telfair.org you will not notice a big difference from the mobile site to the standard site. However, if you visit say tybeebb.com on your smart phone, you will notice a completely custom design closely matching the main site. Yet the mobile version comes from a custom design and not the optimization of the standard website.
