    Love the tagline for Whole. “Holistic Design Agency”. Lovely nod to Douglas Adams’ series. Nicely designed site, too.

    Minimalist designs are growing ever so popular, which I image is good as it would be less work for the web designer :) .. as long as you have a clear mind on the colour combinations.

      Actually, what appears to be simple in design often takes more time and critical thinking. The artist has done their job well if it looks like it was easy to make, though that wasn’t necessarily the case. Of course this makes things more of a challenge when trying to convey value if the client does not have a grasp of what is involved!

      I think meta tags, back-links, and good on Page optimization have this covered.

    I don’t like these kinds of websites. They may look nice, but they usually aren’t user friendly. If I have to search for more than half a second to find the menu I’m looking fore I’ll simply leave.

    Like the one @viki53 commented about. Great a picture of a city with a tagline. What does the website do? As far as I can tell it’s just a full screen ad. I can’t find any way to interact with the website, to find out who it’s from, what it’s fore, what info I can get on this website.

    A nice design is great, but it should go hand in hand with function. The only reason to have a website is because it has a function. If a website isn’t interactive, doesn’t give you info, it has no reason to exist. It’s just an ad.

    Web browsing attention spans are notoriously short, keep the message simple and you’ll get your point across much more effectively. Simplicity sells!
