In Sum

• Simplicity is powerful and leads to greater clarity, yet it is neither simple nor easy to achieve.

• Simplicity can be obtained through the careful reduction of the nonessential.

• As you design slides, keep the following concepts in mind: subtlety, grace, and understated elegance.

• Good designs have plenty of empty space. Think “subtract” not “add.”

• While simplicity is the goal, it is possible to be too simple. Your job is to find the balance most appropriate to your situation.
