    corporateriskwatch.com is probably my favourite; probably due to the rollover style for the menu, which is a little bit different. It offers excellent focus, and leaves the visitor in no doubt as to which link the cursor is currently hovering over.

    Unfortunately, buuhouse.com is not loading most of the images, or not at all for me at present.

  • Vandelay Design, September 15, 2008

    Hmm. It’s not loading for me either. It was last night. I’ll give it a little while before removing it from the list.

  • acidcloud, September 15, 2008

    Great stuff! Thanks!

  • acidcloud, September 15, 2008

    Oh, and to add that, I especially like devwp.com, don’t know why… :)

  • Dainis Graveris, September 16, 2008

    Excellent list. My favorire is BeingWicked web site!

  • Nathan Beck, September 16, 2008

    Lovely sites. I love minimalistic sites done right. It shows that you don’t have to cram your designs for them to look good. Sometimes less is more!

  • ricardo penachi de camargo, September 16, 2008

    Great Work!

  • NaldzGraphics, September 16, 2008

  • Paul Gendek, September 16, 2008

    Once again, I don’t get included in the lists… Check out my single-page portfolio site for white minimal using XHTML, CSS, jQuery, sIFR!

  • ericb, September 16, 2008

    Great list! Good source for inspiration.. Thanks!

  • Soroush, September 16, 2008

    Another excellent collection! I really love minimalistic designs, they appear to look “simple”, but a lot of thought goes into them.

  • Bri Manning, September 16, 2008

    Wow, wevio is really cool. I’m a real fan of the grayscale, and the details using pngs makes the simplicity really pop.

  • Sasa Bogdanovic, September 16, 2008

    If you want to be thorough, this series can become The Young and The Restless of web design :)

    But really. Minimalistic design can always be a source of inspiration for a simple reason that it allows everybody to perceive it personally. Also, it allows you as a designer to easier transmit your message.

    We have gone a bit further by introducing the imaginary concept of FEETER instead of footer. Without any discrimination, we put web pages in their natural order, on two feet instead of one. This approach fits perfectly with minimalistic web design as the light-weight two-feet pages can move then through the web much faster, strengthened and without any extra burden.

  • Leroy Fernandes, September 16, 2008

    This is a really nice collection of websites here. Love minimalistic design.

    I like theme magazines. I just finds that it looks great.

  • Denis, September 17, 2008

    It’s interesting to note how the majority of “minimal” designs are white. I wonder if it’s the colour that makes people perceive it as minimal, or if designers think of the colour white when aiming for minimalism.

  • Vandelay Design, September 17, 2008

    Denis,
    I think it’s a bit of both. When I’m looking to put these galleries together, the white ones do stand out to me, so it’s partly my own perception. But I think designers that are intentionally going for a clean minimal look will typically go with white.

  • Jason, September 17, 2008

    Hey thank you to have added our website : Koleo. This is really nice when we see people loving our stuff =)

    Nice selection, by the way, really useful !

  • Web designer, September 18, 2008

    Thanks for sharing this set!
    fantastic

  • Virginia Web Design, September 18, 2008

    Thanks for putting together such a great list! Minimalist web design is one of the hardest to get right and these are some lovely examples.

  • Desserts, September 19, 2008

    Great website designs. They are perfect because there not too flashy or bright, which can be very distracting for most people.

  • love this designs.. its really nice…

  • Tjobbe, September 30, 2008

    Thanks for featuring my site!

  • Thanksgiving Recipes, October 8, 2008

    these are pretty impressive, i like the koleo site design

  • Q, November 3, 2008

    I really enjoy these minimalist feature articles, and don’t think it’s as easy to accomplish this sort of design as one might think.

    Thanks for the posts!

  • Antonio, November 11, 2008

    Great list. Does anyone know who designed the Corporate Risk Watch site?

  • Dreams, November 13, 2008

    So glad to see that “less is more” designs coming back into fashion. It also helps that website layouts have a lot more space to work with, thus the increases in white space.

    Could you ever imagine so much white space in a 800×600 design?

  • BORABORA, November 22, 2008

    Really really nice minimalistic website designs!
    …Looking forward for part#5!
    Maybe one day mine will be on this page too :)
    Regards

  • John, February 5, 2009

    I like your use of white space around text and photos – or, in the case of Kyan, turquoise space! I think this design was both striking and clean – my only question is: is a home page with such little content OK for SEO? – Or are backlinks king nowadays?
    Very good portfolio!

    • Vandelay Design, February 5, 2009

      John,
      These websites were not designed by us. It’s just a collection of designs from various designers.

  • Zelna, February 12, 2009

    Hi,

    I’ve stumble upon your collections looking for inspiration. Thanks, it really put ideas in my head. I always tell people “KISS” Keep It Simple & Short! I love the simplicity and yet it is still eye-catching.
    Thanks again for sharing with us.

  • You have inspired me. Thank you very much. Good luck with your site

  • Mothership, May 5, 2009

    These collections are brilliant.

    I come back every so often and go through these collections as inspiration and a reminder of how simple works best. We also send the links to clients to provide some ideas for their sites, and find this works well as it shows clients how well a simple, clean, uncluttered design works.

  • Download Photoshop, February 24, 2010

    Good design sites in minimalist style! These sites are very well done presentation of information, they are most suitable for small firms, have their own website!

  • Web Design Surrey, April 28, 2010

    I think you can only show true design skill when you can create a minimalist website like the ones listed. Rather than filling your required space with as much trash as possible!

  • FreeSoft, June 23, 2010

    From every part of the collection of designs in the style of minimalism can podcherpnut for itself something new. Say, you are looking for their own or send them to you?

  • medyum, July 11, 2010

  • Naples Web Design, August 20, 2010

    The Mayo design is my choice. It shows how simplicity will work in a design for a website. Minimalistic design is one of the critical ways I guess to show how creative a web designer is.

  • DIGITAL MEDIA TRAINING, September 22, 2010

    I’m in favor that these Minimalistic Website Designs are beautiful. That is perfect. It is really great stuff. Thank you for sharing this.

  • James, October 22, 2010

    Using very few colors and making the site look simple and yet appealing is great. I like the wevio website very much.

  • FusionHost, March 21, 2011

    Really cool list of clean looking websites here. I like the Wevio one the best. Looks clean, but it’s not just white so it doesn’t look too plain. The devwp logo looks crisp as well. Thanks for sharing them.
