A short introduction

As a designer who's passionate about simple design, I stand on the shoulders of giants. I didn't want to rewrite those giants' words, so instead I've included them in this book.

What I mean is that there are a lot of quotes in this book.

This book tries to define "simple" as it applies to software and website design. If you do not design software or websites, you might not find it relevant.

Simple design is not limited to visual design, but it's a common topic in this book. Your first clue that a design is simple is how it looks, so it's an important thing to think about. I hope I haven't focused on it too much.
