70 Typographic, Clean And Minimalist Color Scheme Web Designs

Hello there! It’s time for little inspiration and this time I wanted to showcase something different. You may know that very popular designer slogan – “More is Less”, and yes it’s often so true – unexperienced people tend to overcrowd, use too much colors in their designs. I just love these designs – they are very light, clean and usually uses only monochrome color scheme and just one or two bright colors for links or headers.

You may also notice for such designs it’s more about grid, harmonic distribution through whole page and very silent, elegant accents. It’s not about many colorful photos,images or icons, crazy backgrounds or experimentation. Almost all of those designs are very clean, slightly increasing web page loading time, sometimes it’s crucial to have as light designs as possible, for example reddit, digg, stumbleupon social networks also consist of very few images and where is possible just color and CSS is used.

1. Brilliancy

One of the best clean, light and elegant websites I came across in this research. Really brilliant!

Hot Meteor specializes in web, print, and branding. Their site looks really professional and clean, good design is one of the best ways how to attract new clients.


8. Mark Boulton Design

Excellent accents leading your eye through whole page in the way author wants it. Follow me to this through – magazine photo + new(s) design is the first point which grabs attention, author explains there what is this site and company about – that first attention grabber is very important. Only then you look at his logo and read further – work, our clients, news, contact sections.

Visit his homepage – starting from index page you’ll get amazed how effectively Vitor Lourenco uses white space.

    I was thinking about going into stagecraft or lighting design because I love theatre both onstage and backstage and backstage seemed like the safer option. But I was looking at a couple websites and it listed jobs for technical theatre that only lasted a couple shows or just one season. Are they all like that or can they be permanent jobs?

  • PolishPokeyPimp August 7, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    In my place the LFS( Local Fish Store) people say that they are special lights designed especially for the planted tank, is it true or a standard fluorescent is enough ?

    What should I do to become a great Lighting Design/Technician?
    I want to become a really great Theatre Lighting Technician during my years studying at my University but I feel like I lack things to improve myself on my own time. What should I do to expand my work skills, build my portfolio, and just prepare myself after graduating with my Bachelors Degree. If you can give me info on anything, I’d be very grateful

  • stingerms August 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    I volunteer at my local church on the technical team. I’m looking for a good software that allows me to create new light designs for new installs on partnering churches. I would love something that allows me to build from the ground up. Any help would be appreciated.

    I’m a junior in high school where I Stage Manager and do Light Design. I am looking for colleges where I can major in these areas. I live in Oregon and SOU is apparently a good school. I do want to go to a school in the bay area or even New York. Any Ideas?

  • morbiusdog August 26, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    For example, stage crew, sound design, light design, board operations, stage management. Will experience in all these areas give me an advantage in searching for a job?

  • Balla September 3, 2013 at 6:46 am

    I know Lawyers get lists , SOMEHOW, from the city halls and bombard you with information when you get a ticket (i assume it is public information after all). I’m trying to do something similar for people building new homes by offering my lighting design services – however, town halls are giving me a hard time about obtaining a permit list. Even though its public information! Any suggestions besides going to those list websites to pay for new homes?

  • Cole September 15, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    How does stage formats i.e. proscenium, thrust or arena effect a lighting design? I know the basics, I know they have to be different, but in what ways?

  • Lasagna delivery guy September 26, 2013 at 1:00 am

    So I am currently doing Undergraduate in Civil Engineering. I will graduate in 2015 and plan to apply for Polytechnic Institute of New York University. I want to apply in Urban systems Engineering and management graduate program with minor in Construction management as an International Student. Has any one here got any idea of about this masters program ? Also My CGPA I will graduate will probably be around 3.68.

    Also, my gf wants to join Parsons The New School Of Architecture. She wants to do masters in the dual degree in Lighting design with minors in Interiors. Her CGPA while graduating should be around 2.8-3.0. Keeping in mind that she is also an International Student.

    Can anyone here please guide me with the following questions :
    – What are our chances to get into these universities. What advise, tips will you give us?
    – How can we later secure a job later in NY ?
    – What will be the job market look like, lets say in 2018 in these area ?
    – What is the scale pay in the U.S right now for Civil Engineers/Architectures.
    – What other recommendations would you like to give us.
    – Is there any good internship opportunities that we can get? Or apprenticeship to help us pay for rent and other utility bills?
    – We also would like to know what areas should we look to live in so that its equidistant from both the universities.
    – How much will be the living cost of an average couple there ?
    Serious answers will be highly appreciated.

    A safety light is designed so that the times between flashes are normally distributed with a mean of 3.00 s and a standard deviation of 0.40 s.

    A. What is the probability that an individual time is greater than 3.50 s=????

    B. What is the probabiltiy that the mean for 50 randomly selected times is greater than 3.5 s ???

  • davemc74656 October 11, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    The opening ceremony was so crazy! The way they used the LED was just insanely clever! Does anybody know who did the lighting design? I know Zhang Yimou was the main guy behind all this, but I wanna know more specifically, who is the firm or person he hired for lighting consultation?

  • Arminator October 15, 2013 at 7:19 am

    I am currently a Freshman at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I know for a fact that after graduation I would like to move to Britain. Most of my concern is that I am a theatre technology student and I wonder what it is like to have to find a job over there. My specialty is Rigging and lighting design; what I would really like to do is find a job working on tours with bands. My curiosity also has a bit to do with how in demand these jobs are in Britain? any information on the subject would be fantastic!

  • turg143 October 25, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I am making an elastic band powered car in Technology and have decided to use propellors. The propellors are made out of plastic and are fairly good. I need a light design which uses just 4 elastic bands and will probably need to used at least 3 propellors. Can you help me? Please include diagrams. Thanks.

    My local MLS states my square footage at 1187 but the county records state 1115. Do the blue prints overrule everything here? If I get the townhome measured by an appraiser there is the human error element.

  • Salam November 25, 2013 at 7:43 am

    I am art and design student and mainly interesting 3d designs like modeling, light designs. I also love to design spaces. Before looking for HE course, I have searched some 3D & interior designer jobs but find surprising result. some industries asking for 3D designer who could handle software and some architectural industries asking for 3D kitchen designer but as you search about 3d and interior designing courses then description about them is totally different then jobs, means in 3D designing you will study ceramic and sculptural studies and in interior designing courses offering study about space. So the moment I am confuse between jobs and courses. Could any one help me please to understand difference between 3D designer and interior designer?

    I am trying to hook up rope lights in my boat. I took out the old lights in the cutty cabin and have access to the original 2 power wires. Can I run the new rope lights (designed for plug-in 110volts) to these wires after taking off the plug which originally came attached to the rope lights or do I need an inverter.

    I need to get a sketch on white paper to photocopy onto black paper… it’s part of an assignment for my Lighting Design class. We then must use colored pencils to draw on top of the image on the black paper.

    My question is… how the hell am I going to get the sketch to be visible on black paper using a photocopier?

  • ttocs November 28, 2013 at 10:54 pm

    I am the general manager of a lighting showroom. I’m looking to gain more business by offering something GREAT for home builders and contractors. If you are in this field, what do you generally expect or wish you could gain from this sort of partnership? Commission for referrals? Discounts? Free lighting design?

  • The Beatles November 29, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    “North Huntingdon planning commissioners are brainstorming ideas for a potential township ordinance that would regulate the brightness of lights, particularly those at businesses during the night hours.”

    Similar ordinances, promoted by the Pennsylvania Outdoor Lighting Council, have passed in 35 municipalities in the eastern part of the state.

    “The council, which is the state affiliate of the International Dark-Sky Association, aims to encourage residents, businesses and municipalities to adopt “good outdoor lighting practices” such as energy-efficient lighting design and operation, limiting light pollution and protecting highway motorists from nuisance glare.”

    – especially for businesses that have a lot of valuables to not light up at night doesn’t make much sense.
