Contrast sharpens perception
Reducing clutter should make it easier on the eyes to find what they are looking for.
Many experience a great deal of discomfort by noise and turning the volume down increases their ability to concentrate on whatever they wish to be concentrating on.
Think of how singer Adele became popular with ignoring all the usual traffic increasing measures, such as social media.
Talk talk is one such cause of pollution.
Now evidence is increasing that reducing colours may help with orientation.
Especially when it comes to interface design for websites.
Generally speaking, websites are terribly cluttered with colour.
And they are becoming static like print.
This is changing and adored change agents are listening.
