The Beauty of Ultra-Minimal Web Design

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Over the years web designers have seen many trends come and go. While very few design trends will ever be thought of as evergreen, those that do move on generally leave a small impression on the next generation of trends.
One timeless web design trend that has been around for quite a while and has imprinted its style onto many other popular trends is minimalism. But in more recent times we’ve seen the minimalist style evolve into a more extreme variant, something web designers are now calling ‘ultra-minimalism.’
Much like standard minimalism, to the untrained eye it might initially appear that all it takes to create an ultra-minimalist site is to strip away all of the non-essential elements and components, and merely replace them with whitespace. There’s much more to it than that. Deciding which elements to discard and keep is a skill in itself.
Every single pixel has to be carefully arranged to produce optimum results. Negative space must be understood and must be applied consistently. Having an expert knowledge of typography and a trained eye for selecting the perfect color scheme are just some of the other creative skills you will need to create an ultra-minimalist web layout successfully.
What does a typical ultra-minimal website look like? Well, they tend to be beautiful, take a look for yourself:
