50 Inspirational Minimally Designed Web Sites

Hot on the heels of last weeks web design inspiration post, 50 Examples of Effective Uses of Typography Within Web Design, we have 50 fresh minimally designed web sites. Quite often the two web design styles work well together, as you may notice from both posts.
The most important factor for minimal to work well, as it should be with all design styles (but, not always the case), is the content. Without good writing or a strong portfolio, the style has no impact and the web design looks cheap. And that is the key to minimal, in the hands of a skilled web designer, they know that the site design has to accentuate the content, and the content, in return, accentuates the web design.
Creating an effective minimal web design, at first thought, would seem to be the cheaper, easier and quicker option to merely throw up a site That is most definitely not the case. Knowing what elements to strip out of a page while still maintaining usability, is just one of the the many skills you will need to successfully build a minimal web design.
The collection of sites below, are great examples of recent successfully designed minimal websites.
