Heuristic Review

An auditing procedure based on ten rules of thumb for good design

A heuristic is also known as a rule of thumb—a generally accurate guideline based on the experiential knowledge of how something works best. We use countless heuristics day-to-day to help simplify our lives and avoid complications. Rules like these provide a quick safety check in our daily activities.

In much the same way, designers use heuristics as a way to formulate and evaluate solutions. Drawing from experience, experts have learned that a design’s failure or success can often be predicted by how well it addresses the following principles of good design.
