To the right is our list of time-tested principles of thought for designing all-star applications. It’s a rubric of sorts for judging the well-rounded-ness of an application. Not all applications need all principles applied; however, all can benefit from being interrogated:
- Could my application be improved by implementing this principle?
- Should I improve this aspect of my data presentation?
It’s not easy to think like a designer, but behind these fundamentals is a wealth of potential for you and your business. Even though this is a work in progress, our thinking is to go ahead and put the list out there to show the breadth of where we’re going and invite feedback as to what you may like to see defined next.
