Simplicity is important – so is an aesthetic. We’ve thought deeply about how to make the writing page as simple, clean and pleasant a place to write as possible. It might not seem like it, especially when you’re in Focus Mode with nothing but the words, but we have. We chose the font carefully, we chose the colours carefully.
There’s not much more to say than that really, so I’ll leave you with some quotes about simplicity and beauty:
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
“Simplicity is the glory of expression.” ~ Walt Whitman
“Good design keeps the user happy, the manufacturer in the black and the aesthete unoffended.” ~ Raymond Loewy Whitman
