Usability Basics

Looking for a good primer on usability principles? Back to School: Design Usability by Eliana Stavrou is an excellent introduction to such important concepts as consistency, visibility of system status and error recovery. Keep this in your bag of tricks for use when you need to explain UXCentricity to the unitiated.

One catty comment: Eliana wisely includes "aesthetic and minimalist design" as an important usability principle. Publisher should heed the advice. The article page is a Times Square of flashing ads, animation and clutter.
