Design Principles Notes

Does anyone have a good compilation of design principles notes or a cheat sheet of some sort? I'm finding the coding aspect easy but its really the philosophy behind the implementation of these skills that truly makes one effective. i COULD make my own notes but maybe someone would like to share. in fact, we all pay to learn from these pros at treehouse, and i believe it would only better serve their students if they provided materials like this to keep our head on straight when applying the knowledge we've attained. My academic background is mainly science, not art and design, so hood a brudder up!

I highly recommend you this book:

It has visual principles, color theory, etc.

Or also you can search for design principles info-graphics on Pinterest or a site like that.
