Horror Vacui

Horror Vacui
Had to read about this one, it implied shopping and window displays of clothing shops!  I love to shop so my curiosity was peaked not to mention the interesting name, LOL.

Horror Vacui refers to the fear of emptiness (opposite of minimalist) and the value perception; that is as Horror Vacui increases Value decreases or increases.  Depending on who is viewing this; the person who is accustomed to having more – Less is more, for the person who is accustomed to having less, more is more.  This is why bulk shops try to fill stores and displays as much as possible and sell for less while boutique shops take a minimalist approach and sell for more.

In designing my e-lesson, I will apply the “Less is More” approach to reduce clutter, create clarity and better understanding of content through less images of higher quality.
