Like a key to open a lock, your UI needs to give access to the content without bothering the user with the complexities which might lie beneath :)

Robbie Manson: The Mindful Designer from New Adventures on Vimeo.

New Adventures, 19th January 2012
We face a challenge: to ensure our design responses are informed more by our thinking than the tools we use. Absorbed by day-to-day execution, we can forget the importance of mistakes and accidents — of balancing intent with experimentation. Failure is valuable, provided we're mindful of why. Embrace the unpredictable nature of everything, and stay mindful. It's how we lace our actions with meaning.
