In Design, Less is More

When it comes to design, I’ve always believed that “less” is very often “more”. So, in spite of the cacophony of those who scream at the top of their lungs to “fill that space up”, it takes much courage to dig in your heels to say “less is more”.

And also, contrary to popular belief, minimal design does not mean minimal effort. I think it takes much more thought and effort to come out with something minimal. “How difficult can that be?” naysayers ask. Well, it takes a lot of foresight, insight and, I believe, courage to choose only to highlight the very best – and not feel paranoid that you “missed out.”

Compare, for example, the 39 Examples Of Minimalist Web Designs (via YouTheDesigner.com) and what is, quite frankly, the worst website design… ever.
