I just caught myself editing the image I just posted a while ago. Well, I just found it embarrassingly overloaded with graphics, while the message itself could be enough. In case you do this occasionally or you decide to do it at one point, I am kindly suggesting you to do it as often as I can. According my graphic design style, I tend to be more on the vivid and bold style rather than minimalistic design (unless it is really clever and expresses everything needed), and I have been often struggling with editing down, but when it feels right, I am not afraid of minimal. This is a very minor example, but it gave me a very good start about a real topic regarding visual design.
Have a look at how I cut down the extras (I was trying step by step, as you see, still hoping to keep something - huh).
