Principles of Feedback

By on

Feedback is receiving information about the action that has taken place. A lack of response indicates shaky/poor feedback. The examples we have chosen include the recent Apple maps design, the pinwheel that appears when a Mac is not responding, and the ability of Facebook to send notifications to your account.

We take advantage of the natural design of stairs, so sometimes when we fall down, it’s the designer’s fault not our clumsiness. There are cases where we are used to the standardized measurement of a flight of stairs, but when the design is altered, we can fall.
