The End of Minimalism

Matt’s redesign is stunning.  he’s improved clarity while adding information and graphic detailing in every area.  Figure-ground relationships are 100% better than the previous version.  I can only hope that this wakes up the rest of the ‘web 2.0’ from the minimalist haze that’s buried everyone in gradients and blank white backgrounds.

    I’m not sure if I’d call it the end of minimalism, yet. Because it’s a personal site and the only person it really has to work for is me, I’m more inclined to take liberties with size and structure of it. For most sites I still prefer a minimal treatment that lets the content stand on its own.

    😆 obviously it’s a little bit of hyperbole.
    minimalism is certainly an appropriate attitude for a some sites, and i’m not advocating that it never be used again, ever. just the end of the fad.

    I like minimalism. I also like great big vivid biright slanted patterened bolded designs. Each has their own place.

    I like matt’s design. I think it could have done with a touch more minimalism though maybe.

    Phooey! I thought I could excusably be ‘done’ for a while.

    Matt’s design is quite nice.
