01 – Practical Instruction Manual Design

One of the top principles to consider when designing an instruction manual is to “get out of the way quickly” and let the user get to work on putting the item together or using it asap. It is a mistake to over-design an instruction manual or provide too much information. Every user wants to spend as little time as possible “figuring out” what the instructions mean.

By examining instruction manuals over 2 centuries much is revealed about the time they were designed in and the society they were written for. Practicality in assembly is all about being concerned with the actual doing of something rather than ideas. When it comes to products, instruction manual designers need to be concerned with communicating to owners on how to actually use the product instead of the theory of using it.
