Minimalist web site design has a popular trend for years. It has so many benefits, minimalist sites load faster, resulting in fewer server resources, and often faster to design and develop compared to more graphically complicated designs.

Although many still view minimalist designs as boring but they cant deny the sophisticated image of minimalism. There’s a real art behind effective website designs through minimalism, something not all designers can master. When you limit the number of graphical elements, such as image, colours and put emphasis on white space and typography, a good eye for spacing and proportion becomes crucial.

The key to a beautiful minimalist site is a solid and structured layout, below are some of the creative minimalist website design I’ve come across throughout 2012. I truly hope to come across more modern minimalist web design in 2013.
