I am willing to bet that most people preferred the third of fourth. Maybe the baby-boomers liked the second!!! The fact is, simplicity and minimization is the trend. Too many websites, brochures, display stands, adverts, covers, packaging and workbooks are too ‘busy’. They don’t appeal and draw the customer in.
Thanks to A2591 Blog for some great work on this. Outstanding and well done
