    Nice presentation style!


    needs how to use it / examples

    Feedback from a developer site I submitted your link to: there is a need for a concrete example of how this works.

    In fact, it would be cool to have a demonstration of the rules violated.

    Simple, smart presentation


    Perhaps too brief, risks allowing dilettantes to mangle the definitions

    I shared The Laws of UX with my team, and they picked it up immediately. We had client presentations that used these maxims written and approved in less than a week. Smart and solid.

    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

    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.

  • Pros: 

    Easy way to learn and consume principles


    These aren't the only factors that affect the UX of a product, and using principles alone is not recommended

    I appreciate having a fun and single location source for these rules to use and share in my UX work

    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.

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

    Good for learners and anyone interested in what to do with UX


    Needs examples to show how it works

    As a hobbyist front-end developer, it certainly interested me. Learning how to properly do UX/UI

    Great visuals, short but descriptive.


    No actual UX/UI cases to illustrate the laws being presented.

    It's a great resource for anyone to quickly remind themselves of things to consider in their design process.

    It looks really beautiful and seems very useful



    Not a designer myself, but this seems like a perfect marriage of design and psychology. Also, and I can't stress this enough, it looks really great!
