Yuille’s* law:

Google Ngram for “reframe

The reframe is a common design move for helping people see an old problem with new eyes.

A reframe is only useful if it helps people to see things differently. Changing multiple elements simultaneously is often confusing and counterproductive.

*I’m pretty sure someone already said this — only more elegantly… so why name this law? Well, if it’s good enough for Bill Buxton
+ I’ve just finished The Martian, so I’m feeling kinda punchy :)
