KDE's design vision focuses on two attributes of KDE software that connect its
future to its history:
- **Simple by default** - Simple and inviting. KDE software is pleasant
to experience and easy to use.
- **Powerful when needed** - Power and flexibility. KDE software allows
users to be effortlessly creative and efficiently productive.
Design Principles
-----------------
The following design principles are used in support of the Design Vision.
- **Simple by default**
- *Make it easy to focus on what matters.* - Remove or minimize elements
not crucial to the primary or main task. Use spacing to keep things
organized. Use color to draw attention. Reveal additional information or
optional functions only when needed.
- *I know how to do that!* - Make things easier to learn by reusing design
patterns from other applications. Other applications that use good design
are a precedent to follow.
- *Do the heavy lifting for me.* - Make complex tasks simple. Make novices
feel like experts. Create ways in which your users can naturally feel
empowered by your software.
- **Powerful when needed**
- *Solve a problem.* - Identify and make very clear to the user what need is
addressed and how.
- *Always in control.* - It should always be clear what can be done, what is
currently happening, and what has just happened. The user should never
feel at the mercy of the tool. Give the user the final say.
- *Be flexible.* - Provide sensible defaults but consider optional
functionality and customization options that don't interfere with the
primary task.

*Simple and inviting. KDE software is pleasant to experience and easy to use.*
- **Make it easy to focus on what matters** — Remove or minimize elements
not crucial to the primary or main task. Use spacing to keep things
organized. Use color to draw attention. Reveal additional information or
optional functions only when needed.
- **I know how to do that!** — Make things easier to learn by reusing design
patterns from other applications. Other applications that use good design
are a precedent to follow.
- **Do the heavy lifting for me** — Make complex tasks simple. Make novices
feel like experts. Create ways in which your users can naturally feel
empowered by your software.
