My Design Philosophies by Tom Giles

User experience is everything
Start with a clear, user-oriented goal
Empathize, prioritize, organize... then ‘design’
Simplify: good design makes complex simple
Technology is best when invisible
Test. Iterate. Refine. Repeat.
Be an editor
Whatever you do, be consistent
