This research tool for conscientious creatives is asking some damn good questions. Created by the design team at Airbnb.
What is it?
Laws of UX is a web resource for designers that sums up key info about various principles from the fields of psychology and technology that are applicable to user-interface design.
How does it use educational principles?
Elaboration Theory: Simplified descriptions about the principles are provided at first. Then these are followed by more complex content such as the origins of the principles and resources for more in-depth reading.
Instructional Content Design: Provides an overview description, key takeaways, background information, and additional resources.
Job Aids: A poster for each principle is also made available for download on the website.
How does it use design principles?
Readability: Despite the complex nature of some of the principles, the content is presented in a clear, succinct way and written at an appropriate reading-level so that readers without a psychology or design background may still understand the concepts.
Aesthetic-Usability Effect: The high quality user-interface design of the web resource creates a pleasant experience viewing the content.
Why is it so damn good?
The web design is gorgeous and the content is on point. But those headers that animate the principles are the real MVP!
