The most underrated sentence in UX design

  • “Is material design good or bad?”
  • “What is the best prototyping tool?”
  • “Should I really never put a carousel on a website?”

Most answers should be preceded by a bunch of questions anyway

Design decisions are not all black-or-white

Bad patterns can sometimes be right

Are carousels always bad?

Even usability principles can be relative

In most cases, context is everything

It’s really okay not to know

“The true method of knowledge is experiment.”
–William Blake
