I often advise my clients, over much objection, that they don't need to weigh their websites down with so much detail. Especially in B2B technology, the bad habit of vomiting out endless information on speeds and feeds and other spec sheet minutia is a hard one for many companies to break.

"Less is more," I tell them. "In design, less is more."

And now, thanks to one publicity-savvy designer, I have a good analogy to provide from the world of fashion.

From the Daily Mail:
