Designing for Empty States

http://tympanus.net/codrops/2013/01/09/designing-for-the-empty-states/

Empty states are places in apps that have no content or data. They are empty. A blank page. Traditionally empty states are overlooked as most designers focus on how best to display lots of content or data. It’s common for empty states to be dealt with by developers as they are often caused by exceptions (such as no internet connection). They often write the copy and as a result it can be a little difficult to understand or it is left with the basic styles. Not the best combination. Itshould be logged as something that needs designing but that doesn’t always happen.

There are three mains types of empty states. First use, User cleared and Errors (e.g. no internet connection)
