Why less is more is THE approach for web design

Strip away unnecessary and distracting elements, but do not delete too much until relevant content gets lost. Of course, as the saying goes, balance is the key to success.

2. Use colours, but not ALL of them

Colour is a significant element which could draw customers in, especially when it is combined beautifully with meanings that match the company’s identity.

The site will become more readable and direct costumes to crucial information or actions.

Of course, simple designs are always chosen over tough ones. Ironically, it is more complex to achieve a simple and minimal style web design Malaysia. There are many aspects that you need to take note of, such as typography, use of white space and colour scheme. These are contributing factors in indicating if your website has a simple and straightforward design, or not.
