Poetic Interfaces

Like good poetry, a well designed interface makes promises.

In a poem, if each third line in the first two stanzas include something about snow peas, then the last four stanzas probably should too (unless you have an extremely good reason for leaving them out. The same is true with interface design.

If you begin to use the color orange as a background on some buttons, you'd best stick with it so the user doesn't get confused or frustraited. This holds true through out the entire design. Make sure your deviations are justified.

Just thought you all should know. 8o)
