In the early 1980s he felt that the world of design was starting to crumble and since he was a high-profile person in the design community he decided to do something about it. So he created the 10 Principles for Good Design.

Principles of minimalist Web design

Principles of minimalist Web design | Minimalism | Scoop.it
Minimalism is achieved by reducing a design to only the most essential elements. Expressions of minimalism span multiple disciplines, as well as other art forms such as music and literature. For website designers, though, minimalism can be intimidating and difficult to master. But anyone can master minimalism. Essentially, minimalism is about breaking things down to the barest elements necessary for a design to function. It's about taking things away until nothing else can be removed without interfering with the purpose of the design. Below are a number of principles of minimalist design, as well as an exploration of current trends and additional examples.

Since design cannot be measured in a finite way, these principles help you to look at your design and decide if your design is good design. These are not laws.

 

There are always exceptions, but if you strive to make your design achieve each of these principles you will find that you are in good company.

The future of design

The future of design | Minimalism | Scoop.it

Frankly, the reductionist view of design began with the dramatic Jobs vs. Ive framing and narrative around the Attack on Skeulandia: Steve Jobs, the liberal arts-y humanist, supposedly wanted the faux leather, felt, and wood-textured treatments of real-world objects applied to virtual ones. Jony Ive, the art-school modernist, supposedly didn’t want any of it.

 

Not only is this framing overly simplified, it’s also irrelevant to design discourse. It misses the key point that design is really about unlocking the possibilities that lie within multiple perspectives.

 

That design is about solving a complex problem with multiple constraints. At their core, both Ive and Jobs understood this: Ive noted yesterday that design is “so much more than the way something looks,” and Jobs too has noted that design is about “how it works.”

 

Design, like many disciplines, is about a diversity of approaches as soft solutions rather than hard truths. It’s a spectrum, not an either-or decision about whether to skeu or not to skeu..
