In this final project, we dive into minimalist design ideas and
discuss how they are being effectively (and ineffectively) used
We begin with a discussion of what minimalism formally is. This
involves examining how closely various examples stick to that
definition, and how that helps (or hurts) their designs.
Then, we continue with an analysis of the various objectives that a
minimalist design tries to achieve, citing examples from real sites
currently being served on the web.
With a solid understanding of the general concepts of minimalism,
we now venture deeper into a consideration of the various tools a
minimalist web designer can employ to deliver his or her message.
The first of these tools is the use of color.
We conclude by studying the use of font in these minimal web
pages, both in choosing which font or fonts to use, and how to
use them effectively on the page.
