As the world becomes increasingly complex and complicated, simplicity becomes increasingly in demand. We all seek simplicity in small or large measure. Simplicity: A Matter of Design offers a set of terms that will allow us to discuss simplicity in design with precision. It looks into the basics of simplicity and researches more in depth three aspects of design: functionality (simplicity for comfort), aesthetics (simplicity for pleasure) and ethics (simplicity for conscience). There is an extra chapter on simplicity in communication. If there is one quality all designers are seeking it is simplicity. Nevertheless, very little is written on the subject. Simplicity: A matter of design is a very clearly written and illustrated must read for students and practitioners who are intrigued by the concept of simplicity.
