There are at least 7 ideals to keep in mind when designing a user interface. Shmula tells us about them.
In his article on humane interface design, shmula lists and describes seven ideals. After a long day of travel, I don’t have anything to add, so we’re just going to suggest you read his article. Here are the seven ideals that are covered in more depth:
- It’s not your fault.
- Simple things should stay simple.
- Fewer choices mean fewer worries.
- Your data is sacred.
- Your train of thought is sacred.
- Good interfaces create good habits.
- Modes cause misery.
