Minimalism is simple?

Saw this poster a few weeks ago on Grant Snider’s INCIDENTAL COMICS and can’t stop thinking about it. Everybody’s talking about simplicity these days. In fact, not a day goes by when I don’t hear someone mention “minimal” or “post-minimal” – or something of the sort.

I love how this poster illustrates that minimalism, in spite of what its name denotes, isn’t actually as simple as you’d like it to be. Similar to what Steve Jobs once said: “Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.”
