7 essential design principles for product managers

Design is a specialized skill, and as a PM, it can be intimidating — especially if it’s not your natural inclination.

1. Tell users what to think

2. Minimize cognitive load

3. Three-click mentality

4. Reversible design

5. Use verbs with context

6. White space is your friend (a.k.a. Use white space to disrupt your competitors)

7. Design in MSP (Minimum Saleable Product)

A product’s design is the first thing a user acknowledges before anything else; it’s the first impression.

…the more you focus on packaging saleable features with compelling, user-friendly design, the more disruptive you can be to the market.

Final words: Let design be your secret weapon
