Maeda and the “Laws of Simplicity”

October 30, 2006 at 8:15 am Leave a comment

Maeda has 10 Laws of Simplicity.

Law 1: REDUCE – The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful reduction.

How simple can
you make it?
 
How complex does
it have to be

Law 5: DIFFERENCES – Simplicity and complexity need each other.

Law 7: EMOTION – More emotions are better than less

Law 10: THE ONE – Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful. (My favorite)

Also of benefit is Key 1: Away“More appears like less by simply moving it far, far away”. I’m hoping this is the case when I finally have my products delivered by the order fulfillment company. I could use some simplicity there.
