What You’ll Learn

Today we're talking about how you can achieve Simple Design. But first, let's understand what it is. If we look at the definition of "simple," we find many of the same adjectives can easily be used to define the design principles of minimalism. So then, simple design can be defined as not elaborate or artificial, but as crisp and concise. It's unambiguous and unadorned, and it uses the least possible number of components, classes, or methods; or the simplest solution.

Many people underestimate the simplistic design philosophy. They think that just because something looks simple, it must have been easy to create. But as we've detailed in this video, it's quite the opposite. The tips we talk about will help you achieve beauty through simplicity in any of your design projects, be it UX/UI, a logo, a poster, a layout, or a website. Possibilities are endless.
