my pov on design

(On User experience and in general)

I believe good user experience should be based on proven principles, not personal opinion (that’s what makes it user experience and not your experience).

I base my UX decisions on the 10 heuristic principles for interaction design.

I base my design decisions on the Gestalt principles of perceptual organization.

I base my mobile ux and design decisions on the standards established for both iOS and Android design.

Anything not covered by all that, I just go with what I find printed on bar napkins.
