UI Design Principles 🌈

Basic design principles that you should not forget about:
It is concerned with overall user interface architecture and says that models should be clear, consistent, recognisable and contain related things together, separate unrelated ones, and making similar things resemble one another.
The design should make simple, common tasks easy, communicating clearly and simply in the user’s own language. The shortcuts must be meaningfully related to longer procedures.
No redundant information and odd alternatives. The design should make all needed options and materials for a given task visible without distraction.
Users should be informed and understand all the relevant actions, changes of state or condition, errors or exceptions in a clear, concise and familiar way.
The design should be flexible to reduce the mistakes and misuse by allowing undoing and redoing.
The design should reuse internal and external components and behaviors, maintaining consistency with purpose rather than merely arbitrary consistency.
