35 Beautiful Minimal Websites – Part 6

Collections of well-designed websites with a minimal approach have always drawn a great response from our readers, so we’ll continue the series with the 6th showcase post of this kind.

Due to the large percentage of our readers that are interested in minimal designs, last month we launched a gallery site, Minimal Exhibit, that focuses on these types of sites. Many of the sites featured in this post have also been featured at Minimal Exhibit, so if you like what you see here, be sure to follow Minimal Exhibit where many new sites are added each week.

    I’m a big fan off minimalism and I have to say you did a great job, although some sites aren’t so minimal in design.

  • Zach, July 7, 2009

    FYI Penflare’s website is a very popular WP theme… just sayin’.

  • Vandelay Design, July 7, 2009

    Thanks Zach, I wasn’t aware of that. I removed it from the post.

  • Jake Rocheleau, July 7, 2009

  • Jon Phillips, July 8, 2009

    Hey Steven, really good list! Thanks for including Design-Newz and TurnThisThingOff! I really like the MT Ventures website, simple, dark and to the point :)

  • alex, July 8, 2009

    hello
    im alex i think your web site has to many pics
    and to little of text alsoto much text on the side you should spred it out x

  • John Gibbard, July 8, 2009

    Some really nice work in here but it is very telling that a large number of these are portfolio sites. Whilst we aspire to this sort of minimalism online, the reality of balancing brand and content demands alongside entirely usable interface design means minimalism often isn’t practical. Volkswagen.co.uk is a notable example of a case where it HAS been done for a major brand.

  • Vandelay Design, July 8, 2009

    John,
    I agree with you, it’s often not practical depending on the company and the needs of the website.

  • Albert Decruz, July 8, 2009

    The blog information is very informative and the presentation is very much impressive Keep doing.

  • Web Templates, July 9, 2009

    Many of them have a “blog” look is this a new trend?

  • ajay, July 9, 2009

  • Cheap Websites - Josh, July 10, 2009

    Fantastic list. I especially like the ‘Hello’ website. HTMinimalist design is the best!

  • Chance Lay/Bayou Design, July 11, 2009

    Love the collection! I think Flush has the greatest black and white theme I have ever witnessed. VERY pleasing to the eye.

    I think this is the trend going towards the future of design.

    Thanks!

    Wow those are all great websites that show that minimalistic design is still elegant and amazing, just like the Mac OS.

  • Franco Scaramuzza, August 15, 2009

    Nice collection.
    I recently finished a minimalistic site. The site was built in Drupal – if anybody cares :)

  • vadim uvazhny, August 18, 2009

    Great collection.
    Could anyone help me to find the name of font in Jarad Johnson’s website header?

  • Brad, August 26, 2009

    A lot of nice sites that just get the job done without all the flash.

  • Mark Carter, October 3, 2009

    These really made me smile. Working at a company where white space if considered virtually criminal (!) … and KISS something close to heretical …. I almost feel like a revolutionary trying to remove stuff and open the designs out!

  • Minimalissimo, October 28, 2009

    Guys, also check out Minimalissimo at http://minimalissimo.com. We blog about minimalist design and try to practice what we preach!

  • seo, December 23, 2009

    Thanks for sharing this! Nice collection.

  • Ronnie Affee, January 25, 2010

    We used to have a complex website that was working well for us but I was tired of looking at it. About 3 months ago we started it’s redesign. We have added a lot to it including articles and blogs but we really want to keep it simple. Even are buttons are in html text. I think simple is sometimes better.

    Great articles!

  • I wish my clients would appreciate the art of minimalist websites … unfortunately the Gold Coast is known for its bad taste …
    Not wanting to add to it – we are trying to educate our clients about “good design” and hope that our message gets through to them.

  • Sashamisha, June 11, 2010

    Pithiness it’s what I like so much. In Ukraine it’s a great rarity))

  • successful entrepreneur, July 31, 2010

    siteInspire is a nice little design.
