14 MINIMAL BUSINESS & CORPORATE WEB DESIGNS for DEVELOPERS
Interactive innovations and HTML5 experiments are often best appreciated in a barebones environment, so it’s no wonder numerous minimalist websites show off entrancing effects. That said, many (if not most) minimalist sites are still, well, minimal, keeping the focus on their products and content.
Simple design on a subtle grid. Garnished with color saturation via scrolling. A fun, clean, good interaction!
Despite the many colors “above the fold,” Sur la Route Encore’s site (designed by Minuit Sept) toes the minimalist line.
Dropbox’s purpose (as illustrated) and call to action have a hefty impact — due, in part, to their airy design.
Products take center stage on Budnitz’s homepage, and the “SHOP” button just screams at us to “buy one of these bedazzling bikes ASAP!”
Running with bold, minty accent and hover colors, Helvetica, and Flat UI, Fresh Product (like Budnitz Bicycles) keeps their wares prominent. Even the grey in the color scheme mimics the off-white backdrop of the photographed items for sale.
For juggling a lot of content and products, Oakley keeps their page rather simple, and makes use of a mega drop-down navigation menu to avoid overcrowding the homepage.
The soft background is spruced up with outlines of all the enticing things you can sell with Chec, but the page overall keeps the flourishes to a minimum.
By suppressing the urge to embellish the font and structure, the engrossing pointer-to-background animation can engulf the user (who doesn’t want to control the weather?).
Simple, lovely, and (as promised) plain.
Like Plain, Smith uses grayscale for some high-contrast oomph.
Lots of space, soft pastels, and keeping buttons to a minimum make Yield’s site palatable and easy to navigate.
12. Room 11
Room 11 leaves plenty of whitespace, which allows the team (and their terse “About Us” blurb that you’ll see upon scrolling down) to stand out from the crowd.
Along with bold color, Rubicon packs a lot of punch with their fonts and flat design.
14. Exponent PR
To highlight their video montage at the top of the page (and photos as you scroll), Exponent’s site features simple color and font that makes everything pop.
15. Fair State
Minimal design complements the bold color on this brewery site.
