Minimalism & Blank Space Web Design

Minimalism & Blank Space Web Design

In recent years, western society has graduated to a minimalistic lifestyle. We are more consciously aware of our footprint. From interior design through to art, we are beginning to see the beauty in minimalism and space. Clean lines, white spaces and a subdued colour palette are all features of a minimalistic website design. It expresses a sense of professionalism, simplicity and gives a sense of grounding to the company. Call to action buttons are clearer with this design, making it accessible and easy to navigate. We say, less is more.  

Dark Mode Design for Websites

Dark Mode Design for Websites

Many apps, computer and phone settings have introduced dark mode due to research on blue light affecting our vision and sleep. Additional to the health claims, dark mode can dramatically give your website a sleek and modern feel. Take notes from the big tech giant, Apple. Colours pop against the black and feel much more vibrant. Other innovative websites have incorporated a switch between light and dark mode to suit the viewer’s preferences.

Hidden Menu

Hiding your menu is an easy way to get more real estate on the first fold of your website. Either it can pop out from the side – pushing the contents to the side as well or you can have the menu fade across the whole screen like the theme above. Ensure that your main image(s) are professionally shot and can be viewed clearly on any large screen or monitor.

Oversized Typography

Oversized Typography

We have spoken a lot about minimalism and space. However, we have not mentioned that it works perfect with oversized typography. With our attention spanning shortening day by day, we desire quick and informative grabs. Got a great headline? Amplify it in huge font sizes to ensure you are heard. We suggest that when you use oversized text, you keep everything else clean and simple. Otherwise you are working with paragraphs of text, large images, and graphics, which may not coincide with big text very well.
