Less finish, more content

Just read an amazing post (opens in a new window) by the dudes at Signal vs Noise, and I felt compelled to share it.

Two pictures, little text, a clear message communicated, an iconic post symbolizing what a blog should or could be.

The message: sometimes the finish is superfluous, sometimes you will be better off without the surface paint, without the surface cover. The raw material, the raw content is more important than the finished look.

Obviously, sometimes the black finish (or in general the coat of finishing polish that you put on any of your creations) might be an important part of the design. But if it isn't, then it isn't needed.

Don't bother masking your work with too much fluff, because you'll end up loosing time maintaining that fluff.
