A practical guide to simplicity
Have you ever set out to simplify a user experience and found that everyone around you was trying to add more complexity and detail? Have you ever found yourself caught between customers who demand simplicity and competitors who out gun you with exciting features? Designing simplicity can be complex.
Simple and usable offers examples and stories that break the subject down into tips, strategies and guidelines you can follow to create websites, software or mobile apps which have a compelling simplicity.
The harder we try to create simple user experiences, the more we tie ourselves up in knots. We are undermined by demands to cram in more features, or lured into approaches that turn out to be more complex than ever.
Simplicity is a discipline that can be learned. This book shows you how—with humor, powerful examples, quotes, and case studies. You’ll learn to strip away complexity by organizing, removing, hiding, and displacing. And you’ll see how to create focused, elegant user experiences that people will love.
