70+ Minimalistic and Simple Portfolio Website
When I was surfing the Internet earlier this week looking for great looking portfolio web designs it hit me how many of these are actually minimalistic and simple in their expression. Unlike the trends just a few years ago where web design was voluminous and packed with features it seems as if online portfolios more often are stripped down to their bare essentials.
As you can see from the examples I have included below there are many ways to execute this trend. However, keeping it minimalistic and simple is not as easy as it seems. A big part of this design technique is to boil the design down to a minimum and only making room for the most essential content. However, what is essential to some people may be important to others. An important element in minimalistic design, on the other hand, is to include lots of white space and keep the design flat. Flat and minimal web design does not make use of gradients and keep busy graphics to a minimum.
I hope you will find this collection of minimalistic and simple portfolio websites inspiring and that you can find ideas on how to implement it in your next design. If you are not keen on creating the website from scratch, you should do like most other business owners – use a WordPress theme that is designed to be minimalistic and simple in the expression. Happy design hunting!
