    This is a great collection.
    Minimal design is debatably the hardest type. There is truly an art to only using what is needed. Another good one is http://www.ehousestudio.com

    wonderful work.. it takes alot of effort and experience to build and create such simple yet attractive websites :)

    thanks for sharing

  • Howell NJ Website Design, December 18, 2009

    People get so caught up in fancy web site design, that it seems they’re willing to sacrifice functionality for appearances. I love the minimalist designs. I think a website for a small business should tell the story in a quiet way. Sell the business, not the site. These designs are perfect for that.

  • Daniele, December 18, 2009

    I love the look of these sites also. They load fast, present the information clearly without the graphics distracting you, and they do it in a way that makes it look easy. Being a web designer myself I can appreciate such nice work. Very well done.

    thanks for sharing the interesting list. some look quite similar to each other but nice to see some fresh ones.

  • Eric Di Bari, January 11, 2010

    I’m a big fan of the minimalist websites with some color. The mainly white ones are nice but almost too plain.

  • Piotr Podgorski, January 12, 2010

    This one was rejected many times by Creatica: http://www.creativemashup.pl

    What you think about that ?

  • Download Photoshop, February 17, 2010

    Very like the style of minimalism for that perfect information is presented on the site, it is convenient to read. Most probably, this style is convenient to use on Web sites and business cards at social services, where the main – is presenting the information. Thanks for the interesting collection of designs, it took me to a note!

  • FreeSoft, June 22, 2010

    For colors I prefer the design Cubedroute, while the rest are elements that want to use. Actually, I think that for the user and information blog designed in a minimalist style is well suited.
