…When we started this journey, I said…a user experience is all about communicating clearly.…And logic and the understanding of logic can help us ensure that when we…want to communicate something, that message is…understood by the people we are communicating with.…If you look around you in everyday life, you'll see how…a lot of things have user experiences that are based on logic.…To see this phenomenon in action, look no further…than the signage painted on the roads we drive on.…Even to the uninitiated, it is quite easy to follow these…signs and most do not require an in-depth understanding of language.…
All you need is a basic understanding of symbolism and logic.…A street divided by one or two solid lines, is a logical indicator…that there's a separation between the two lanes, one that should not be crossed.…A dashed line, or an opening…on the other hand, indicates that this is an area where you can cross the line.…And a dotted line indicates this is somewhere…where you're probably going to cross the line.…
The core idea of logic is to create a system in which communication is clear, precise, and unambiguous, which is (or at least should be) the goal of any website or other communication.
