Put some thought into our life. No worries about when or how to interpret the signs on the road, or worse if the person that will give you a ticket understands what it means. When there are more then 2 signs, rethink the goal and create a simple sign like this.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

When you want to make a compelling and overall great interface, remember this quote:

“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Having less is not less valuable. It's ok to have blank areas. When others ask about the blank spaces, it's a seperator and content focus technique. At first you'll fail to have nothing, but that's not the goal. Keep working at it and take away pieces and components until it's just right. Look at your competitors and see how they don't know what they want to tell you so they add everything they can think of. Clear focused design intent.

I like how the table is an made out of old wood with the rough uncut bark, but on the surface is clean and smooth which incorporates the glass. Modern and classic at the same time.

I find the machine is better than any artificial artwork. Same as steam engines and mechanical clocks. Looking at the machine that has a purpose is more interesting to me.

I saw the Thoughtbot Hound site today. The site is clean, but has the timeline that shows how to get started without adding distraction. The use of purple (#a873d1) is not my first choice, but it works so well here. This is the site as it is on April 10th, 2014 reference design houndci.com, it may have changed.

Relaunching this website to focus on Design. Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns). Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in pottery, engineering, management, cowboy coding and graphic design) is also considered to be design. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design
