Creating content is a priority for every business. Creating content that is high quality and that converts is the goal. To make things more complicated, presenting that content in an attractive way is another priority.
Rather than making your website colourful with 16 different aspects to look at, content presented with a minimalist effect often performs better.
What Is Minimalist Web Design?
Minimalist web design is summed up with the well known quote ï¿½less is moreï¿½.
When you arrive on a website taking this approach, you are more likely to be doing exactly what the company wants you to do, reading their blog, learning about them, and checking out their products.
Companies benefit from this rather than directing customers to start at the home page, where they can be tempted by looking at all the different shiny objects but ultimately not taking any action.
Benefits Of Minimalist Web Design?
#1 Less Maintenance
Creating content is not easy and is time consuming. With a web design with minimal factors, you can get your content up on your website faster, allowing you to get back to the creation process.
#2 Faster Loading
In a day where we inhale large amounts of content, with more and more trying to capture your attention you need to provide instant access. A website with lots of features may take less than a second longer to load, but that is crucial. A faster loading website ensures people stay engaged.
#3 Effective Call to Actions
Having consumed your content, you have a very short period of time to keep this person’s attention before they head off to consume content elsewhere. With a minimalist web design you can make your call to action easy to spot, clear and the focus of attention.
Other Routes To Minimalist Web Design
When people talk about a minimalist web design, the words white space are normally thrown into sentences on the topic. It is true, dark text stands out on a white background but that doesnï¿½t mean a white background is a must.
White text stands out just as well on a black background and there are plenty of examples of leading brands taking this approach. Check out the websites for Heavy App, the All Blacks and Plural App for inspiration.
With a minimalist web design, you are cutting out all of the unnecessary fluff while providing real benefits. Leave the pure gold to be found quickly.
