UI Design Article


#1

This isn't necessarily a tool or anything to do with code, but this is a really neat article about good UI design. There's some really interesting things in here that I never really gave much attention, but now I'm noticing these things everywhere. I'll definitely be thinking of this guide the next time I'm designing a UI. Check out parts 1 and 2.

It really was. Very interesting observations. I wonder if there's any other articles like this. Anyone know of any good articles about UI, or anything else for that matter? I love learning.

I don't have any reference on mind, but I have seen in the past a few good ones on PSDTuts+ or Designer News

'How to fix a bad user interface' by Scott Hurff
Some good points. But I don't agree with him on everything.
