  76. Have a structure for your system. Having an overlying structure,

    will help you stay consistent and organized.
  77. Study the content. In content lies constraints, discovering those constraints

    will enable us to make better design decisions.
  78. Work from the inside out. Design pieces of content, and

    then explore how they might live within the system.
