I couldn’t help but post a link to the latest entry on Garr Reynold’s Presentation Zen blog titled “Ichi ju san sai: A lesson in less-is-more” that draws parallels between principles of Japanese cooking and those of good presentation and design.
“Good presentations subtract the superfluous and add the meaningful and are efficient with time. However, ineffective presentations are often weak in relevant content and meaning but nonetheless take a very long time to deliver. The principle behind ichi ju san sai is a good lesson in achieving variety & balance through simplicity.”
I also can’t help but note that I thoroughly enjoyed the fun in posting about Mr. Reynold’s June 22 entry on June 21. (He is in Japan.)
