A few more examples of Design Principles have been added to the site. We now have over 145 examples. However, there's still quite a few sources with "Help needed" at the bottom of the page.
Did you know?
principles.design is Open Source. If a piece of information is missing from an example you'll see a "Help needed…" box at the bottom of the page. The box contains some tips and guidance about what's missing. Here's an example: Paypal's Design Principles. Currently this example has a missing overview, source and summaries for each principle.
If an overview is missing for a particular set of principles, why not write one? There's plenty of examples that don't have an overview. Some use a paragraph pasted from the source.
I recently wrote an overview for IBM's Blockchain Design Principles. It's a brief overview of the challenges the team faced and a summary of how they achieved their goals. It doesn't have to be too detailed, just enough information to put the principles into context.
- What kind of team was involved?
- What sort of challenges did they face?
- How did they choose their design principles?
- How did they measure their goals?
- What positive gains were there?
Briefly covering a few points like the above would be super-helpful to the community.
If you want to contribute in any way please take a look at the github repo or just drop me an email and I will be happy to help.
Filtering, tags, sorting
Filtering and tags are still a work in progress. They'll be on the site soon. There's quite a lot of manual work in re-reading the examples and adding appropriate tags.
Thanks for reading and as always here are some interesting links and some featured examples from principles.design
