25 Beautiful Examples of Modern Minimal Web Design

All designers have different interpretations of what minimal web design truly is, but most would agree that the purpose of an effective minimally designed web page is to layout the content in such a way that no single element distracts attention from the visual hierarchy. And the key to achieving minimal distraction is to initially have a well-structured backbone focused on the comparative space relation between the fundamental elements of the web page.

This gallery features 25 minimally designed sites that have not only stripped away all non-essential elements, but have also successfully soaked up popular modern design trends, like over-sized typography and imagery, simple yet effective navigation systems, continuous scrolling, carefully selected interactive elements, and all use the latest responsive techniques.

And, as you would expect from minimal web design, focus is firmly put on the content.

    Many of these sites while visually nice, are confusing and frustrating to use. Some excellent examples of worst cases of design over function.

    It might be a matter of taste, but most of these are very confusing and not very user friendly. And not that good looking either. Seems to be weird for the sake of being weird.
