I’ve done a fair bit of design in my past, so I’m very much of the opinion that design works. I am however a man who believes design is how it works, not how it looks (as a smart man once put it).
Unusually there’s a few articles sourced from venture captial-ish sites this week, but I guess in a subject as fundemental as design it’s just as important to VC-funded startups.
The Intercom blog is a great source of product and design advice. Here @destraynor helps think through prioritization of your features.
While it’s tricky to A/B test when you’re just starting out and have very little traffic, but you can start earlier than you think. Just ask @kylerush of Optimizely.
Using a profile of Oscar Health, a heathcare startup, to structure four principles about design. This piece by Eddie Segel covers the drive to simplicity in their quest to fix insurance.
A quick reminder from @nelsonjoyce about striving for true simplicity, even for complex problems, in your designs.
Something I completely agree with from @jakek I’m a big fan of using bootstrap or similar when I’m in a prototyping mood.
