The Result of Maturity Is Simplicity

This and many other posts are also available as a pretty, well-behaved e-book: On Web Development.

Finally, it doesn’t lack irony that more often than enough, web design gets protected by the credo “the end justifies the means” and pragmatism’s paid homage to. The question is whether you’re talking about sick, sanctimonious pragmatism or healthy, intelligent one. Functionality and simplicity are siblings of the latter; maturity is what our industry ultimately gains.

From my contribution to the all new Web Designer’s Sketchbook (German).
