While, it’s natural for most websites to overhaul things (hopefully for the better) every couple of years, I took it upon myself to challenge just how minimalist I could go, while retaining all the important pieces of my main design site.
Well, I managed to take it down from about 20 pages to just 2, and all the essentials are still there! That means I had a lot of redundant and useless garbage on the old design.
I believe in minimalism, I think it’s this aspect that makes websites like Twitter massively popular. I’ve been practicing minimalism more and more over the past couple years and it comes down to one thing, psychology. Minimalism isn’t about being lazy or making work easy, it’s actually tedious and kind of a fine art to keep things minimalist.
What it’s really about is people hate clutter and useless filler content! Some websites have so much going on that it’s suffocating. It’s the same basic principle in advertising and resume writing and many other mediums. Simplicity is key, straight to the point, “Show me the good stuff, don’t make me mull over the blah blah blah to get to it.”
So without further wait, 20 pages, down to 2:
