Dieter Rams 10 Principles for Good Design
When you read these 10 principles, you go "duh".  But these are harder to achieve successfully than you'd think.  I'd say these principles can be confined to "simple design for humans".  We change, and so will design.  We have needs, and design should respond to those needs.

Don Norman: 3 ways good design makes you happy
Don Norman believes that happiness is the result of good design. He referenced the "oo" in Google and explained how it is a solution and kinda fun. He talks about how simple solutions like this can affect design in a positive way. The emotions that he talks about are there, but apparently we are unaware of them.
Visceral, behavioral, and reflective outline the three emotions.

QUESTION FOR DON NORMAN: Does all good design create happiness? It seems like there would be exceptions. Or, is all design that creates happiness good design?
