A product needs to be innovative in its own particular way, needs to have something that hits you right in the chest. Even the most common practice can be improved.
There’s always a “why” that brings you to a “how”. Knowing why we’re doing something is the guideline for how it has to be done.
Every decision should have a rational reason and a study to understand and apply its best implementation, with regards to the location, the consistency, the negative space, the typography, and more.
Even the smallest detail must have a meaning and a purpose. Even when opting for a minimal and hyper-clean design, everything should communicate a precise feeling, an idea, and an intention.
The design should completely serve the usability while enhancing the appearance of the product. A product should always explain itself by only presenting itself.
A good product must be a pleasure for the eyes. Why? Subconsciously, no one wants to use or own an ugly product, even if it’s technically the best on the market.
Besides the size or the amount of functionalities of a product, it should be compact. For a product to be compact it is crucial to do a UX studyy and analysis to make sure all the various functionalities and features coexist in a perfect balance
A product should be always up to date with the latest technologies and design trends. Although it should have its own identity, this identity can’t be built on deprecated or obsolete rules.
Our products are always stable and secure. A good product shouldn’t break or leave its user in bad situations because of security issues.
A product should always allow its final user to completely manage it in all of its functionalities without requiring any external help or explanation. Easily. Only when anyone immediately understands a product by just using it, you know you’ve made a good product.
