Minimalist Design

Minimalism is beautiful, but also one of the hardest looks to achieve. Designers find it difficult, as they have to make the website look good using only the barest minimum of elements. Often, the site would not look complete without putting a widget here, or another widget there. We have to approach the design problem from a different viewpoint, 'taking out' instead of 'adding to'. But take out too much and you not only lose functionality, you make the site look naked. And not in a good way.

It takes a lot of iterations, a lot of effort, to find the perfect balance. Successful minimalist design should look neither cluttered nor bare.

Of course, the most important part in simplifying design is figuring out which elements you can live without. Get rid of unnecessary icons, social media, lists, sections, and navigation. Use as little texture, color and graphics as possible. Make liberal use of whitespace. And don't forget to use alignment, balance and contrast to your advantage.

A post I came across showcases a list of successful minimalist designs, with insights on why those designs work.
