Happy Fiscal New Year


Filed under: Shore News Design Principles are Brilliant

We were really excited to find something that captures our own design thinking so perfectly. From starting with user needs, designing for accessibility, and insisting on evidence-based design decisions; these guys have structured these ideas really well.

1 Start with needs*
2 Do less
3 Design with data
4 Do the hard work to make it simple
5 Iterate. Then iterate again.
6 Build for inclusion
7 Understand context
8 Build digital services, not websites
9 Be consistent, not uniform
10 Make things open: it makes things better

Martin Fowler on cross-platform mobile

“The trade-off between native and a web app is between affordability and quality of user-experience”

Another excellent slide deck from Martin Fowler, this time on developing apps for multiple mobile devices and the hazards posed by cross-platform toolkits (among other things…). Definitely worth reading.
