“John Maeda is a graphic designer, visual artist, and computer scientist at the MIT Media Lab. He’s been dubbed ‘the Master of Simplicity,’ is the author of a blog on simplicity, and also has a new book called The Laws of Simplicity. The book outlines ten laws of simplicity over 100 pages (a page count restraint Maeda imposed on himself). It’s full of interesting anecdotes and big picture ideas about simplicity.”
