Simplicity

Take a moment to watch this video of John Maeda (of MIT Media Lab fame, now President of my alma mater, RISD) speaking at the TED conference about simplicity patterns. I really enjoy Maeda’s whimsical take on simplicity in our lives (you’ll see what I mean).

This reminds me of a slogan that we say here at Newfangled – sometimes sarcastically, sometimes in a celebratory way – “Another day, another rectangle,” which points out that, from a design perspective, sometimes websites are just rectangles. It’s that simple 😉

Also, for you TED enthusiasts out there, here’s an interesting take from this week’s New York Times Magazine: Confessions of a TED Addict.
