I have been browsing through a number of books on contemporary graphics design recently and I must say: "more is better" seems to be the motto of many designs. Adobe Illustrator is powering complex gradients, elaborate ornaments and sophisticated hand-drawn effects. Maybe graphics design is ready for a "Zen revolution" similar to presentation design? (Or I simply have been reading the wrong books?).
