Ten Laws of Simplicity (John Maeda)

  1. Reduce - The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful reduction.
  2. Organize - Organization makes a system of many appear fewer.
  3. Time - Savings in time feel like simplicity.
  4. Learn - Knowledge make everything simpler.
  5. Differences - Simplicity and complexity need each other.
  6. Context - What lies in the periphery of simplicity is definitely not peripheral.
  7. Emotion - More emotions are better than less.
  8. Trust - In simplicity we trust.
  9. Failure - Some things can never be made simple.
  10. The One - Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful.

Three Keys (John Maeda)

  1. Away - More appears like less by simply moving it far, far away.
  2. Open - Openness simplifies complexity.
  3. Power - Use less, gain more.
