What is minimalism in graphic design?

What is minimalism in graphic design and how can one apply this concept to a design? I keep seeing the term minimalist design while reading graphic-related websites and magazines, but I’m not so sure on the specifics. Could someone explain this?

Answer

Less is more

ie. Strip down to the necessary elements. Throw away noise and clutter. Create a zen-like experience. Ask: “Is this necessary?” It is hard to give other rules or principles since they can be successfully broken and minimalism maintained. If I had to describe minimalism with one word, it could be breathable or an antonym for chaos.
