Here at Spencer Studio we can really appreciate the beauty of a simplistic design. Whether its one simple idea, one media used or just raw beauty. We have listed the reasons why we love simplicity in design when producing our own work and admiring others.

  1. Fewer Distractions

When a design is simple, your eyes are not distracted by unnecessary objects such as over detail or messy additions.  Busy designs can be overwhelming and ruin an otherwise beautiful design. It is a real shame to see initially perfect design ideas, spoiled when the artist keeps adding more and more.

  1. Quality Focus

When you have one great idea, with a simple design, you can give your full focus to achieving that effectively. Let’s use a sculpture of a torso for example; using one material this can be sculpted into a stunningly beautiful formation of a man or woman, you can use all your focus in this one idea and material to produce a high quality and perfect formation.

  1. Efficiency

When producing designs, it can be important to be efficient, keeping designs simple and not over complicating the making production process can save you a lot of time and stress. This doesn’t mean you’re taking the easy route, it simply means you are being productive and creating effective designs.

So often in design it is easy to get carried away, over complicating ideas that initially were perfect as they were. It is important to remember that a well-planned and delivered simple design can be just as powerful and pleasing to the eye than an over-elaborate and detailed piece.
