The Simplicable design guide attempts to capture the foundations of design such as design concepts, principles and design culture. We try to avoid the obvious and cliche to list first principles and concepts that are interesting and potentially useful. This guide isn't technical or focused on any one area of design. As such, it may of general interest to professional designers or people who want to apply design to their work. Please check it out below.
