Keep It Simple Silly!

August 27, 2009 § Leave a comment

It’s also called Minimalism. Am a big fan of this school of thought or atleast lately i have become one. Keeping things as simple as possible.

As the name suggests, its is all about stripping something to the bare essentials. Making it un-cluttered. Right kind of emphasis given to each object in the space. This kind of improves the aesthetics of the visual..

Though, it was described in art, music, etc from the 70’s in terms of web design, Google was the 1st to establish it. With its search box only Google stands out even now. We see n number of websites which have followed Google’s footsteps (Cuil, Wolfram|Alpha).

Here are some impressive websites for inspiration..
