Clean websites are getting more and more popular all over the net. Many people just love lightweight designs with simple layouts, free from heavy web elements and complex color combinations. The main idea of clean designs is to achieve simplicity in form and content thereby presenting a clear message to the website visitors. It can be attained by taking into account some important aspects that make a web design clean.
So, what should we do in order to create a good clean style website?
- Simplify the layout by minimizing content. Remove most of the images and leave, for example, the one that is the most expressive.
- Create a structural balance by means of grid systems.
- Use white space effectively. It simplifies the work with a website a lot.
- The use of colors should be moderate and intelligent. For example, you can use an unobtrusive color as a background and then highlight the elements you need by using any accent color.
- Use images wisely. You need to find a right balance of using graphic elements and images.
- Use easily readable and expressive typography: if used appropriately, it is able to replace heavy images and visual elements.
