It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Why is this supposedly not a real question? Comments instead of just clicking the close button would give a lot better feedback. – txwikinger Aug 12 '10 at 21:22
See the "scope of questions" discussion on meta. We're still trying to work out what should be considered on topic. I'd appreciate your input. – Patrick McElhaney Aug 13 '10 at 0:06
Try narrowing down your query a bit, this question will probably lead to endless discussions. Unless we're misunderstanding your meaning of design principles – Ignacio Aug 13 '10 at 0:22
I would think about different design principles like feedback, visibility etc. I doubt there are more than a defined set like that. – txwikinger Aug 13 '10 at 0:30
As @ign pointed out - this question, even if your last comment did anything to narrow it down (I don't think that it did), this question will probably lead to endless discussions, which is not the purpose of a Q&A site. – Charles Boyung Aug 13 '10 at 16:12

I think it is a general question. You can find the answer in books about design and UI. Try this: The Principles of Beautiful Web Design.
