Four Strategies for Simplicity

Source: http://www.getfinch.com/2012/04/simplicity-isnt-simple/

1

Remove

Remove

Get rid of anything that isn’t essential to the application. This could mean content, too; like the language you use in the navigation labels.

2

Organize

Organize

Arrange the elements of the interface so that they fit into logical chunks. This might mean based on a person’s mental model (how they think), or tie in to a more familiar interface pattern.

3

Hide

Hide

Place the most important elements within reach (make them obvious), and hide the others, making them accessible through navigation.

4

Displace

Displace

Pushing some of the functionality to another device, or feature, so that the one interface isn’t responsible for displaying every possible interaction.
