Minimalistic is not a word. Minimalist is. But minimal is better.

October 20, 2008 9 Comments

There is no such word as minimalistic. The word is minimalist. (Or minimal as Brian points out in the comments). Don't believe me? Try this dictionary.

There's something a bit ironic about people misusing minimalist by making it longer than necessary ... Although as there are 1.7 million uses of minimalistic on the internet, perhaps ironic doesn't quite cover it.
