The Dallas iPhone Developers & Entrepreneurs met Thursday night, August 22, 6-9 p.m. for “Design + Mobile.” A panel of designers from [x]cube LABS presented 10 Principles of Design, as applied to mobile, based on designer Dieter Rams’ iconic list, including Billy Zinser, Director: Strategy + Design, Samuel Solomon, Senior Interactive Designer, and Louie Solomon, Interactive Designer. You can check out the slide show here.
What are Rams’ 10 Principles?
The question of the night was how to adapt these design principles to mobile. How could principles intended for industrial design be applied to touch screens the size of a playing card? How can the designer shape the user experience? As a follow up to the discussion, attended by both developers and designers, we started a reading list of recommended resources, see below.
