The beauty of these principles lies partly in the uniqueness of their composition, but also in the fact that they apply just as much to any type of design field. Many big industries in the world are based on this platform such as technology, transport, fashion and many more.
These are the very essential principles that needs to be followed to make proper design.
It is aesthetic
Form should always follow function, but it should not be forgotten. We should be concerned with the impact that aesthetics have on a user and delight them with the visual effect of your product. The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products we use every day affect our person and our well-being.
It is evergreen
Designing for the sake of fashion is a dangerous and generally unhelpful thing. What is fashionable today will at best be unfashionable tomorrow. A good design can only stand out of the others when it has a long-lasting impact on the viewers and it is thoroughly associated with a particular product.
It is understood
This is paramount in design as it is acceptable that there are products that are going to require documentation or at least basic explanatory content to use due to inherent complexity, but if a any kind of design requires inordinate instruction to be usable, something is surely wrong with it and needs to replaced.
It is minimal
Design should always be intentional, never just filigree. Anything that doesn’t serve the user should be eliminated. visual design can indirectly serve the user just as much as an excellent feature set can directly serve a user as the essential aspects needs to be defined in a proper design element.
It is truthful
We should be honest with our users about what we’re delivering to them. However we make a promise, whether that promise is presented through a visual affordance, iconography, or even through marketing. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept and back false promises.
