Less is more aka the value of quality in design, communication and perception | 


Ever thought of the pure value of a meaningful dialogue, a conversation that makes sense by contributing with an “aha” moment in its’ written, oral or pictorial form? The essential moment of discovery, the tiny second of perceiving the core element of a message | 

A few centuries ago, this Scottish philosophical adventurer stated

we live in a world where there is more and more information, and less and less meaning | David Hume


In those simple few words 
an eternal truth is cleverly hidden …
it is all about the quality,
the conscious selection process
the eagerness to find out more about
a particular subject…
being selfishly selective
leads our mind towards finding more
about subjects close to one’s heart, mind and soul | 


How do the above statements relate to design and communication? Well, simply said, there is a close connection between being mindfully demanding {READ: selective} and the moment of discovering the uncompromised quality… that largely contributes to something that can be described as rather fine | 


What are the reasons for paying so much attention to the quality of design and visual communication?

Something that represents a real value, something that signifies the organisational credo or represents the mission of a business… well, no further arguments needs… it must be not just “pretty” or “good”, it must be outstanding, it must signifies the reputational advantage of a business in order to be treated with a deserved respect while contributing to long-term successes achieved by high quality communication messages, assets and engagements | 


The know-how of quality in design:

1 | does it serve the purpose?

2 | is it easy to understand?

3 | is it aesthetically pleasant?

4 | does it speak the language of your audience?

5 | is it authentic?

6 | will it remain current?

7 | can it be used in multicultural environments?

8 | is it balanced?

9 | is it eye catching?

10 | does it evoke harmony and balance?
