Based on a simple geometric description of orthogonal projections onto closed, convex sets we find an implicit formula for the L2-projection onto the Lp-unit ball. This allows us to to prove the Lp-quasi-contractivity of semigroups generated by linear elliptic operators and quasi-linear operators of q-Laplace-type in a simple way.
