UX designers, or team members interested in UX
What is it?
Heuristic evaluation is a method for reviewing designs based on ten basic principles. The term was coined by Jakob Neilsen back in 1995, but the principles are still just as relevant today.
Why use it?
- Provide expert review of designs, which can be a great companion to feedback from usability testing.
- It can be difficult to provide useful design critiques. These heuristics help reviewers provide concrete, actionable feedback.
