Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction.
— Albert Einstein
I would argue that a huge part of that genius Einstein refers to can be found in clarity of purpose and principles.
We all wind up in those situations where we're focusing on technical details, implementation and points of process, and missing the bigger picture. I confess I've been there far too often. When we find ourselves in those situations as designers, it's important to have some guiding principles we can remind ourselves of and even share with our team and colleagues. Guiding principles can help get everyone on the same page and make it easier to work through the details of process and implementation. They're no panacea, but they've certainly helped me maintain my sanity.
Below I've documented some of my emerging, fundamental design principles. These principles have helped guide me in this brave new world of a bazillion devices and amazing possibilities. Hopefully they'll be helpful to you as you hone your design process, document your own principles, and face challenges along the way.

As we saw when Twitter.com was recently compromised by hackers, "Reset everyone's passwords, right away!" is almost always one of the important steps. If you run a Drupal site, that particular step can be frustrating. Resetting user passwords one by one is incredibly time consuming, and there's no way to do it for everyone in one fell swoop. At least, there wasn't until the release of the Mass Password Reset module…
