AK: Your favorite quote? And why?
Shreevyas: "Thats been one of my mantras:focus and simplicity.Simple can be harder than complex:You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simpler."......Steve jobs.
Simplicity is that one design rule that you should never overlook.If your design is too simple,it might lose it's appeal.Making your design too busy and you could confuse the viewers.When designing,be sure to create a balance and always search for both positive and negative feedback.
