Clean, consistent and minimalist designs

Some designs are commonly appreciated, while others are what one would refer to as ‘acquired taste’. I, however, like clean web designs that capitalize on content.

As a designer, it can be tempting to use a lot of unnecessary design elements or a complex color palette to make a website stand out.

Doing this will often result in a web site that looks over designed and distracts from what’s most important: the content.

Most of the time, you’ll discover that it’s much better to take a minimalistic approach. So for today, we gathered 15 Fresh Examples of Clean and Minimal Web Designs to inspire your for your next project.

Building Consistency and Relationships into Your Designs

First up, one of your main aims with any website should be to build the relationship between the user and the website. The reason being to create trust with the user, so that they feel comfortable with navigating and interacting with the website. Through design and functionality, you can then offer your users a better experience.

Building consistency in your designs also helps to strengthen your brand and keep a brand’s message clear. For a client, it’s important for their business that their brand’s message (whether online, offline, or in any other medium) is consistent as that will again build trust with their customer base. If a brand’s message is inconsistent, confusing or difficult to understand, this can be off-putting to customers and can even affect sales and enquiries, ultimately having a detrimental effect on your client’s businesses.

Even yourself, as an individual, need to understand the importance of consistency in your brand. You, yourself, are a brand. Even if you have a personal blog, you are putting yourself on the web and should care about your brand and image. Sometimes, particularly in the web industry, it’s even more important to build a brand consistency for yourself, as it helps to set you apart and make you unique.
