The Best Design Advice I Can Give

Coco Chanel, Fashion Icon

Remove clutter. Allow the eye to breathe.

The  essence of an often-quoted bit of advice from Coco Channel can also be applied as a design theory,

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”

Now, apply this to other forms of creative design. Whatever design elements you are pushing about, try removing one, or two. Add white space. It almost always brings clarity. This theory can be used in graphic design, interior design and beyond.

When too many design elements compete, your design loses professionalism, direction, and organization.

Remove clutter. Allow the eye to breathe. So simple!
