“I think that understanding the story of the business—the story of the people—is really important for our engineers. They don’t want to just hear, ‘Oh, I found 20 bugs.’ But if I can tell them a story that makes sense to them, that’s a more effective way to get at the problem.” -Andy Santamaria, Square

@bokardo’s Principles of User Interface Design

  1. Interfaces exist to enable interaction
  2. Clarity is job #1
  3. Conserve attention at all costs
  4. Keep users in control
  5. Direct manipulation is best
  6. One primary action per screen
  7. Keep secondary actions secondary
  8. Provide a natural next step
  9. Appearance follows behavior (aka form follows function)
  10. Consistency matters
  11. Strong visual hierarchies work best
  12. Smart organization reduces cognitive load
  13. Highlight, don’t determine, with color
  14. Progressive disclosure
  15. Help people inline
  16. A crucial moment: the zero state
  17. Existing problems are most valuable
  18. Great design is invisible
  19. Build on other design disciplines
  20. Interfaces exist to be used
