John Maeda's The Laws of Simplicity

TEN LAWS


1. Reduce: The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful

reduction.

2. Organize: Organization makes a system of many appear fewer.

3. Time: Savings in time feel like simplicity.

4. Learn: Knowledge makes everything simpler.

5. Diferences Simplicity and complexity need each other.

6. Context What lies in the periphery of simplicity is definitely not peripheral.

7. Emotion More emotions are better than less.

8. Trust In simplicity we trust.

9. Failure Some things can never be made simple.

10. The One: Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful.

Wired 4.09: Go With The Flow

According to Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, great Web sites are not about navigating content, but staging experience
Selene Wong's insight:

"flow", is a finely tuned sense of rhythm, involvement, and anticipation: being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmost.

5 Ways For Purposeful Brands To Stand Out

5 Ways For Purposeful Brands To Stand Out | Creative Management | Scoop.it

Everyone has a CSR plan but not everyone does it in a way that is meaningful to consumers or is good at telling people about it.

 

What’s the difference between a brand with purpose and a purpose-driven brand? Sounds like a subtle nuance, but according to new research, the distinction is proving ever more important, especially in an era where consumers remain skeptical and business leaders expect corporate values to translate into tangible returns.

 

As Edelman’s recent brandshare and Trust Barometer studies reveal, when it comes to purpose, there is a widening gap between what people expect and what many brands and organizations deliver. While 92% of consumers want to do business with companies that share their values, only 14% have faith in business or believe that brands engage them well. Additionally, 40% of consumers don’t think brands are doing enough to demonstrate their beliefs in helping the world.

 

40% OF CONSUMERS DON’T THINK BRANDS ARE DOING ENOUGH TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR BELIEFS IN HELPING THE WORLD.

 

The Reputation Institute reveals similar findings. The

institute’s 2013 survey shows that while 73% percent of consumers are willing to recommend companies that stand for something meaningful, only 5% believe that companies actually deliver on their promises....
