Minimalist is maybe not what comes to mind when someone start designing a new website. In our post-web2.0 era everyone wants more fancy and flashy sites.
Less is often better and that’s something we designers seem to forget to satisfy our lust for intricate designs. Detail is what makes a good design, and minimal is all about that. Minimal is fresh, often very usable and doesn’t blow your mind up with things to concentrate on.
We’ve done a small selection of nice minimalist WordPress sites and a few minimal themes to quick start your next project.
Some themes to get you started
