5 Principles to Design By

Designer/developer Joshua Porter lists his five design principles in the latest post on his blog, Bokardo:

  1. Technology serves humans.
  2. Design is not art.
  3. The experience belongs to the user.
  4. Great design in invisible.
  5. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Pretty sound advice. Even if we could only get techies to follow principle 1 and artists/designers/ponytails to follow principle 2, that would solve a lot of problems.
