Laws of Simplicity champions the notion of simplicity in design, technology, business, and life. The site presents ten laws that guide the creation of simple systems and products. These include reducing, organising, saving time, learning, differences, context, emotion, trust, failure, and the one.

Reducing involves minimising the number of steps needed to complete an action. Organising, on the other hand, is about arranging elements in a manner that promotes usability and understanding. Saving time is about systems that streamline tasks and make users feel like they are saving time.

Learning is about incorporating knowledge into design, making systems intuitive and easy to grasp. Differences involve creating variations that make a system or product stand out. Context is about taking into account the environment in which a product or system will be used.

Emotion is about evoking positive feelings in users. Trust is about dependability and reliability. Failure recognises that no system is perfect and that there should be room for improvement. The one law is about simplicity being about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful.

These laws, as the site suggests, can be applied in various fields and contexts, from creating a product to refining a business model, to simplifying one’s life.
