Minimalism Is Simple Comic

A very inspirational comic on minimalism in web development, well in web design particularly.

We, who develop and design in the world of pixels, need reminding to stay still, take stock and look around a bit. We need to keep things minimalist. Does this piece of functionality really help the user? Is there a simpler way of creating that ends with the same result. I found this poster by Grant Snider that pretty much sums it up.

Get rid of the unnecessary
Create structure
Stop searching for hidden meaning
Embrace what is solid
Lose yourself in patterns
Don’t fear empty space
Stay clean
Be bold and colorful
Don’t be too expressive!
Less is more…but less is more difficult than it looks.
