We do regular talks at my company Zuhlke Engineering where I talked about Design 101 for non-designers. You might have asked yourself as well, why does some webpages or products look more appealing than others. What is it that makes the difference?
I picked three basic concepts of Design: Colours, Typography and CRAP.
My talk is based on this sources:
