Present Information In Multiple Courses...Like A French Meal

Sometimes when you design a screen there is too much information to be presented on one screen. You cannot avoid it. In times like these I suggest you serve such information in multiple courses like the french do with their food. Do not overwhelm users with all the information at the same time.

Present the first course, then make them work to reveal other pieces of information. This is will not only help them focus on the essential information first but also help you build in small surprises and delights in your screen. All this food talk makes me hungry. Why did I have to write this at 5.30 in the evening?
