Minimalism, the art of less, is a popular modern design approach. Experimenting with colors, transitions, navigation, broken composition, or even the complete removal of all elements – there are more ways to implement minimalism than you can imagine.
In this article, we explore minimalism as it’s applied in digital product design, going over its main principles and elements and illustrating them with real-life examples of stunning minimalist websites.
The main principles of minimalism in web design:
