A Showcase of Super Clean Web Designs

By / Jul 3, 2009 / Inspiration

So what is clean web design? Some may say that clean and minimal are one and the same. They are right to some extent, but I believe a site can still be considered clean while making use of color and design elements. To me, a clean design is one that has an uncluttered layout, makes use of plenty of white space, and screams professionalism. If you’re still wondering what clean web design is, below are some excellent examples.

    Really great collection if only stuff like this was in leicester, be good if it listed what technologie sthey were in though like php, flash, javascript libraries etc. I always find you cannot design a blog too much or people fon’t recognise it as a blog. Martin Balhar’s portfolio is my favourite.

  • Mathew Sim

    Good collection! I especially like Martin Balhar’s website!
