Minimalism and Visual Design
May 12, 2006
I have been working on several design ideas recently. The tension I have felt is between minimalism and coming up with a visually appealing design. As I have tried to minimize the visual design using CSS, I have produced designs that I am not too excited about. I want to find a balance. I like having some visual appeal to the design without it detracting from what the user is coming to do, get good content. I was inspired by a couple of designs on CSS Zen Garden and was able to use that inspiration in a design I am working on.
