Simple – easy to understand, use, is not elaborate or artificial

1. Simplicity in design is a reductive process (use your eraser before your pencil.)

2. Implement design tenets based upon your personas and value proposition.

3. Adhere to these tenets throughout the product lifecycle.

4. Remove everything possible (this will be controversial, expect to work outside your comfort zone)

(Things to remove text, iconography, features, unnecessary configuration, or settings, etc…)

5. Use rapid low-fidelity prototyping to find the plan of record.

6. Don’t confuse best-practices with simplicity.

7. “To truly create something, you must first destroy it.” – Picasso
