The complexity of simplicity

By November 22, 2017December 13th, 2019No Comments
The beauty of simplicity is enhanced through proportion, scale, and materials. There is a sensitivity to details that can’t be glossed over. This focus on detail is what elevates a product from simple to sophisticated.

When design is done right, you don’t see the time and effort put into making a beautifully aesthetic and functional product. Simplicity and sophistication take time — and talent — to execute properly.  Simplicity is not just eliminating the superfluous, it is reducing to reveal value.  Simplicity is the pursuit of exposing the beauty of an idea or a form.  Through the use of certain design cues and details, signature elements are defined that give your product or brand a concrete identity.  These elements reinforce and emphasize key brand attributes and vision.

“Good design doesn’t get in the way; it distills the complex nature of a brand into something that is utterly simple and makes sense.” says Ricardo Galbis, a New York-based creative specializing in direction, brand strategy, user experience and interface design.
