Designing websites and getting some cool ideas is not easy. Ideas are born from ideas, you just need the compositional skills to get & set things right. Check out the below websites and see how different designer ideas are and how unique each website is. Minimalist Web Design doesn’t mean making the website navigation and design simplest, but simpler. Minimalism avoids much distraction , take a look at some websites they are really dark and includes too many UI elements, but still you will notice the message and what it is supposed to do. Minimalism doesnt actually mean light coloured backgrounds and big fonts, anything will do as long as its simple and less annoying at the user end.
Minimalism in a website is how its contents and the design itself are well spaced and co-ordinated. Everyone need a website, its like a identity in the online world. Creating a fan page and advertising your brands just through social media is not enough. A website reflecting your brand and business is essential. Social media networks doesnt create a identity for your business, it only helps to reach audience of your choice and the rest is done or should be done through the websites.
E-commerce, portfolio , photography related sites can easily be made simple and clean. If someone is a babysitter or someone is a painter they don’t need to talk about what they do and what they are capable of, they just need to get their contact information correct and properly visible. A single static page is much more than enough for some people who just want to leave a identity. People who do local business would like to get local search results in their favor. Its much appropriate to get a local listing in google, bing and yahoo for local searches like Lakewood web design , Lakewood hairstylist etc. Other than being minimal, website loads very fast when design elements are low and thus takes less resources and money. As said minimalist designs are not for everyone.
Lets say for example- A web designer needs a website which show off his or her skills. Different people need differnet type of website design and CMS. A blogger doesnt like a web design with pretty parallax effects. These kind of visually appealing sites are kind of static websites and not meant for dynamic contents. So what exactly is minimalism ? Well you get straight to the point with your website either its for sale or just content. Well designied and user friendly navigation do their part in a minimal website design.
