Abstract

Key points

Lean methods can give rich insights: Even a few, short sessions with a handful of users can generate useful inputs for a user-centric design process.

Design for beginners: An interface that supports novices will also support experts.

Keep it simple: Focus on functionality that supports core search and discovery tasks.

Popular or high-value features should have prime position and rarely used or low-value features should be hidden or removed.

Visual cues are important for usability, as is balancing the visual space.
