Everything Clicks

You ever wonder how somethings are just so easy, simple to use and frictionless to engage with? OK, maybe you don't, that's fine - most simple processes are taken for granted. They're just expected to be that way, right?

I'm one of those weird people that obsess over simple things. Things that fit, things that are cleverly designed and things that just 'click'.

Some of the most simplest things we see were extremely complex in their make up or design. This amazes me, I often take things apart visually, sometimes even physically, to determine what thought went into it for this thing to be so perfect.

My favourite quote to this end is, "If I had more time, I would have written you a shorter letter." Simplicity takes time, it takes effort and it takes a desire to make something better than what could stand in for good enough.
