Less Is More

Whilst working through the “Making Marilyn” project tutorial, I noticed something very specific. When tracing an original image you are told to simplify the path you draw to make it look neater.

It made me consider that perhaps less is more. When working in design, there is a fine line between dynamic and over the top. I think we need to learn to master the art of knowing the difference and set our standards there. If this project has taught me anything, it’s that beauty can just be simple, it doesn’t need to be complex at all. Just like in music, where if you strip back the music to just an acoustic piece, it will always sound beautiful.
