The Minimalistic Approach and more Crave for Less
You may perhaps heard the word “minimalism” and ask yourself what is it all about and how minimalist design is taking over.
According to Wikipedia, minimalism began in post- World War II Western art, most strongly with American visual arts in the 1960s and early 1970s. In visual arts, music, and other mediums, minimalism is a style that uses pared-down design elements.
Here are some related guides to achieve and unlock minimalism design features. Minimalist design can be somewhat identified by a context that doesn’t comprise unnecessary elements but in fact it is as simple as possible.
Give your elements the need for space
White space is often referred to as negative space, and if used accurately on your design it can help balance, give fresh mood and help you breathe. It is not totally the Taylor Swift’s Blank Space (haha) that some have misunderstood but rather a great design schema.
Your practical approach
First thing first, plan. Plan, evaluate and adjust. You can’t be on the same place as in forever. So you need to let go of some things that can make a better framework out of your design. Less is more. More is less. Less is real.
Be direct and set your goal
Today, we spent most of our time trying to impress and finish something in the office or out in the field. But this time, set your goal into a more minimal design that can portray yourself. Focus and let go. More space, less stuff. But don’t forget that consistency on your design is a key secret for a winning piece.
Design is a strategy. Don’t get confused on which to eliminate but instead design a piece which can help your viewers understand and interact without hassle.
