Simplify to Clarify


Genius signage seen at MEC Toronto

Well done Mountain Equipment Co-op! You clearly wanted us to think before we toss and so you simplified your words and presentation brilliantly to achieve this. Bravo! Makes me think of the famous Einstein quote “The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.”

Communication is complicated.

Your approach shouldn't be.
