Minimalism is all the rage in web design at the moment. For good reason too, with the amount of information that is often required of a website, they can get cluttered up pretty quickly if you don’t keep a firm hand on the design. By cutting things back to a minimum, you can create a clear, bold site that is a pleasure to the eye and, more importantly, easy to navigate.
