I remember learning this form of CRAP in college. This, however I think of as only a starting point during initial layout and composition design.

After college, a colleague showed me what could be considered to be the advanced form of CRAP:

Continuity
Refinement
Articulation
Purpose

Cheers,

Since abandoning drawing at age 8, I've always told myself that visuals are simply beyond my ability.

More and more, I'm realizing that I have no excuse for punting on such a broad set of skills and that, with technology, I can go a long way toward creating attractive visuals.

Thanks for sharing the sample from your book. It's exactly the kind of help I need to head in that direction.

Nice Post
There's a wonderful book by John Maeda, now the head of the Rhode Island School of Design, called "The Laws of Simplicity." The first law is "Reduce." Same idea as cut the crap.
