Design Commandments

June 12, 2009

Dieter Rams, an industrial designer for Braun, is well known in the design world for his ten commandments of good design:

  • Innovative
  • Useful
  • Aesthetic
  • Self-explanatory
  • Unobtrusive
  • Honest
  • Durable
  • Thorough
  • Environmentally-friendly
  • As little design as possible

Tor Løvskogen Bollingmo takes it one step further with his Design Commandments.

Built on Ram’s 10 Commandments, the site provides some useful links to help you apply the principles to website and application design.
