7 design commandments.

I’m talking about Deiter Ram’s “Ten Principles for Good Design.” No good designer ever really forgets them, but if you haven’t checked in with Dieter in a while it’s worth a refresher. Like his products, his principles will, no doubt, stand the test of time. [ Ten Principles for Good Design ]
