10 minimalist sites

One of the principles of good design by Dieter Rams says that “good design is as little design as possible“. Designing a beautiful, minimalist website is not an easy task. You have to figure out how to combine few elements with a lot of whitespace and get a good looking layout. Remember, less is more.

Keeping things simple is the whole purpose of minimal design.

Ronalds Vilciņš – a skilled front-end developer, created a list of 10 minimalist, clean and fresh website designs for your inspiration. Have a look:

1. Design Jobs Board

The color scheme used here is magnificent. Smooth animation and effects are a great addition too.

6. Nördik Impakt

Hamburger menus and preloaders might not be the best solutions for sites viewed on desktop PCs and laptops, but here we see a creative approach, and we like it.

A really unique and interesting idea: the projects are displayed in a functional browser app with tabs and additional info is available in mini apps/windows.
