UX Design Principles
Make it intuitive.
Limit choices and create a clear path for the user.
Build trust so the user is encouraged to explore and interact with the product.
Changes in our designs, research, and processes lead to growth and differentiation.
Put user needs first.
We examine the product, feature, or control to define how it is used and whether it enables the user to do so in a simple and effective manner.
