UX Axioms & Other Observations

2,013

Published on

For an updated version of this talk see http://www.slideshare.net/eadahl/ux-axioms-26-principle-to-drive-better-product-design or http://www.uxaxioms.com/

This talk was given to the IxDA Grand Rapids meeting on December 11, 2012. It is an initial exploration of axioms and observations that are relevant to UX Design. These 50 Axioms are a exploration into the UX space building off the successful Design Axioms we (Involution Studios) have already created - http://designaxioms.com/

This presentation will evolve. Some axioms will die, some new ones will be born and the rest will recombine to take new forms. As the number of axioms shrinks, stories will be added to illuminate and highlight the axiom in the real world.

I would love your critical feedback and critique as these evolve.

Thanks you to the Grand Rapids IxDA for inviting me to speak and allowing me to explore this new space with them.

  5. 5. "Our goal as designers of this thing, should not beto have this object be an end in itself. Happinessisnt going to come from engaging in this new pieceof software.

But you notice where that putsthe emphasis, the emphasis is not on the product.The product becomes like a hole that you lookthrough. Its a very zen kind of notion.
