Those posters are unreal. You should sell those as a means to support the site and your efforts. Even have a Big Bundle that includes all of them. I know lots of teams and companies that would decorate an entire wall with these as design aesthetic and as a subtle reminder.

@joshuapinter Agreed. I'd love to put some of these up in the office!
Awesome collection and must to know laws! One thing that I noticed is that “Zeigarnik Effect” is 12th of 11
@levchenkod I saw that too but thought it's a nice touch that it's about uncompleted or interrupted tasks. Maybe someone got interrupted during the bug fix 😜

If you haven't had a chance to explore the research papers and psychology theory, Laws of UX is a great starting point.


Awesome quick reference to psychology laws that affect design decisions.


Would love to see an example right on the site before launching into further reading.

This is a really nice piece of work. I love the vintage book cover design style!

Very nice to go over these rules again. Good reminder. Would be nice to add some real-world examples showing how these law's work amidst all the complexity of fully operational sites.


Very readable, simplified laws of UX. Great to read more in-depth sources.


The laws don't stand by themselves but will always influence each other
