As a designer, simplicity is everything I strive for in a design. Look at the most successful design concepts of all time, and 95% of them are simple. Just look at Apple and it’s product line. All of their products, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, are simple.
Simple to use.
Simple to navigate.
They strive to create straightforward designs that people, who have no skills at operating technology, can even use them.
The easier it is for someone to understand what you stand for and who you are, the easier it is for those same to people to share it with others.
I’ve taken this model of simplicity and applied it to my everyday life.
Simplicity is not being boring. Simplicity is being intentional on how you want to be represented.
How do you want to be represented?
