I can’t describe myself as a design aficionado, but I am aware of terms such as ‘affordance’.
In my understanding, this refers to the ease of using a product.
There is room for puzzles and obstacle courses in my imagination, but it is always comforting to know that tasks can be completed with minimal fuss.
Back in the day, it felt frustrating to hear the words ‘keep it simple’, from authority figures. What is energy for, if a person can’t be ambitious?
Nowadays, it is clear that energy should be saved like money, for a rainy day.
