“Problems should be fixed through simple solutions, something you donâ€™t have to configure, maintain, control. The perfect solution needs to be so simple and transparent you forget itâ€™s even there.
However, elegantly minimal designs donâ€™t happen by chance. Theyâ€™re the result of difficult decisions. Whether in the ideation, designing, or the testing phases of projects, UX practitioners have a critical role in restraining the feature sets within our designs to reduce the complexity on projects.
The best products donâ€™t focus on features, they focus on clarity, argues Jon Bolt.
