Hello there! It’s time for little inspiration and this time I wanted to showcase something different. You may know that very popular designer slogan – “More is Less”, and yes it’s often so true – unexperienced people tend to overcrowd, use too much colors in their designs. I just love these designs – they are very light, clean and usually uses only monochrome color scheme and just one or two bright colors for links or headers.
You may also notice for such designs it’s more about grid, harmonic distribution through whole page and very silent, elegant accents. It’s not about many colorful photos,images or icons, crazy backgrounds or experimentation. Almost all of those designs are very clean, slightly increasing web page loading time, sometimes it’s crucial to have as light designs as possible, for example reddit, digg, stumbleupon social networks also consist of very few images and where is possible just color and CSS is used.
One of the best clean, light and elegant websites I came across in this research. Really brilliant!
Very clean, yet professional web design.
Hot Meteor specializes in web, print, and branding. Their site looks really professional and clean, good design is one of the best ways how to attract new clients.
Excellent accents leading your eye through whole page in the way author wants it. Follow me to this through – magazine photo + new(s) design is the first point which grabs attention, author explains there what is this site and company about – that first attention grabber is very important. Only then you look at his logo and read further – work, our clients, news, contact sections.
Visit his homepage – starting from index page you’ll get amazed how effectively Vitor Lourenco uses white space.
Beautiful website using just few very subtle, monochrome colors and only pink color in logo is used to highlight most important links.
On this site so much is going on – I mean so many sections and categories, but still it looks pretty clean.

Obvious, but I could not resist myself and not to include Apple minimalist ethalon page, though everyone knows about it already I am sure.
