Most appliances comes with a user manual and a quick starter guide. The manual resembles most business presentations today, the quick starter guide is what you should aim to design.

  • Long
  • Lots of words, long paragraphs, clumsy translations into multiple languages
  • Regulatory disclaimers
  • Logical structure
Quick starter guide:
  • Short
  • Visuals only (no need for languages)
  • Only info that matters (regulatory statements are out)
  • Story structure (the order of what needs to happen when you take the thing out of the box)
