How to achieve simplicity? | Anum, DT Blog

Always remember that removing anything is not simplicity. Adding enough information at the right time is simplicity. If you are a designer or a writer then simplicity is the best thing, which you can offer to your clients. Simplicity can be achieved in everything, which we do in our day to day life.
Those sentences conclude this blog article by graphic designer Anum. Her advice in the blogs earlier sentences and paragraphs mostly uses design examples. But as Anum notes above, her advice can be applied to writing and "everything ... we do."

Her blog gives advice on these topics:
  • Presenting a single idea (including a short plug for using plain language)
  • Improving clarity
  • Maintaining consistency.
