Sometimes, in order to create a visually appealing website, web designers put in as many interactive elements as they can onto the webpage, which often ends up slowing down the website, as well as distracting the reader from the purpose of the website. There are a few ways, however, to minimalize web design.
The first way is to maximize the usage of whitespace. An abundance of whitespace draws attention to the important content on the page, and for mobile users, makes it easier to display clickable objects. And though it is called whitespace, it does not necessarily have to be white, but could be another plain bright color.
The second way is to effectively use contrast. Contrast can be used with colors, in order to create an image that is pleasing to the eye, but it can also be used with size, with large sizes representing more important information. Since studies have shown that the left side of the screen gets more viewing time, it may be helpful to post more information there.
The third way is to focus on navigating to the next pages, a strategy that involves user experience. The website should be simplified enough so that users can go over to the next page without too much trouble, and should be designed in an as user-friendly way as possible. Easy navigation will encourage users to come back to the website at a later date.
Finally, the fourth way to minimize web design is to make sure to bring everything together on the website. One possible way is to make the website symmetric, or perhaps make the layout deliberately unsymmetrical. While it may be tempting to make a webpage appear as impressive as possible, sometimes simpler web designs enhance user experience.
