Sometimes, less isn’t more. More is more.
I can appreciate minimalism for what it is: clean, simple, user-friendly design. And designers will argue that a whole lot of complexity happens behind the scenes to arrive at simplicity. But what about when you want it all out there on the front lines? Process and all. I think clutter can be beautiful too. I mean, what’s so special about a bunch of white space? Less is just, kind of, depressing. Where at least more is never boring.
If your work space, living space, or mind look anything like this < it’s ok. An explosion of ideas and materials is a great starting place. It might just take some sorting out.
Sorry if I have enraged any minimalist designers. Some days, I just want to be a maximalist. Deal with it.
