In our visual communication class our assignment was to pick a visual subject to research, and make a piece about it. In our piece we had to incorporate 2000 words on the subject. Including some history about the period, and how it started.
I chose to take a dive into minimalism.
What I find interesting is that minimalism is more of a principle than a visual style.
And since it’s only a principle and direction of designing, designers in any field can use it.
The principle is easy: Don’t include element that you don’t need.
With fewer elements every detail counts and the message you want to communicate gets clearer.
