The laws of simplicity by John Maeda ( )
27 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, the author offers ten laws for balancing simplicity and complexity in business, technology, and design--guidelines for needing less and actually getting more. The author explores the question of how we can redefine the notion of "improved" so that it doesn't always mean something more, something added on. Maeda's first law of simplicity is reduce. It's not necessarily beneficial to add technology features just because we can. And the features that we do have must be organized (Law 2) in a sensible hierarchy so users aren't distracted by features and functions they don't need. But simplicity is not less just for the sake of less. Skip ahead to Law 9: "Failure: some things can never be made simple." Maeda's concise guide to simplicity in the digital age show us how this idea can be a cornerstone of organizations and their products--how it can drive both business and technology. We can learn to simplify without sacrificing comfort and meaning, and we can achieve balance described in Law 10. This law, which Maeda calls "The One", tells us: "Simplicity is about subracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful."--Book cover

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Each year, the New York chapter of the AIGA invites a group of emerging designers to participate in the Fresh Dialogue forum. In/Visible: Graphic Data Revealed brings together a diverse group of information graphics designers for a lively discussion about the challenges they face visualizing information. Steve Duenes manages the New York Times print and online graphics department; Andrew Kuo attempts to categorize unmeasurable human emotions through meticulous charts and diagrams; Fernanda Vigas of IBM's Visual Communication Lab is the cocreator of the Many Eyes social website that encourages members to upload, interpret, and revisualize one another's data. Their discussion, moderated by Rhode Island School of Design president John Maeda, covers a range of current and anticipated trends in visual journalism, including issues such as data integrity and visual ethics, judicious simplicity versus seductive complexity, and the ever-increasing demand for dynamic information. As designers, they share an amazing ability to empower readers by translating complicated data into visual ideas whose understanding we all depend on to make sense of our everyday world
