I’m a big honkin’ believer in clean design. The more we clutter our world, the more painful it is for us to take in. Yeh, Times Square is kind of cool…for about five minutes. Someone was kind enough to painstakingly remove the logos, branding and nonsense from everyday urban photos. Without all that noise, the images are actually…beautiful?
Clean design isn’t only appealing in furniture and fashion. It’s appealing when applied just about anywhere. Think about the next time you design anything really…a web site, a logo, a business card. Don’t underestimate the power of nothingness.
