There is a delicate balance between the simplicity of use and the complexity of usefulness

“There is a delicate balance between the simplicity of use and the complexity of usefulness. But it is true the product that is clear in its purpose, elegant in its execution and simple in its use will set itself apart from the competition and endear itself to the user. Designing for simplicity is a process of calculated refinement.” – Joshua Brewer

This quote is from Joshua’s 52 Weeks of UX article “Simplicity Isn’t that Simple.”

Every decision a designer makes molds the future of the people we design for

“Everything a designer does affects the user experience. From the purposeful addition of a design element to the negligent omission of crucial messaging, every decision is molding the future of the people we design for.” – Joshua Brewer
