The 10 Principles of Design for Trust

Design serves one primary purpose: to gain the trust of its intended audience. Within the first second of viewing a design — before even reading a single word — we have already determined our opinion about the quality and likely trustworthiness of what we are seeing. Once that basic line of trust is established, it is only then that design can clearly work to help turn data into knowledge and knowledge into understanding.

In this session, Jason will present the 10 principles of trust for design, and look at how you can use them to help clients understand often obscure design decisions.
