Less is Still More: The Lasting Appeal of Minimalism in Web Design

The concept of minimalism isn’t exactly a new one, as it has been introduced back in the early 1900s by print designer Lucian Bernhard. Since then, minimalism as a technique and an artistic style has lasted throughout the next decades, enduring through time and gradually finding its way to web design.

The past few years saw a rise in the number of websites utilizing a minimalist approach in their web design, and these layouts are quickly establishing themselves as the preferred design trend not only among web pages but also among mobile operating systems. There’s a lot more to having a minimalist or flat design, however, than simply presenting a simple web design.
