Minimalist vs Maximalist Design: How to choose which one is right for you?

Recommended Posts

Depends on what message you are trying to get across. Rock Band site selling music and bookings, bold, bright. Modern art, could be either, based on the artists style. Children's book author, bright, bold, very friendly. Resturaunts, once again that depends on the place itself. White tablecloth place, understated, emphasis on atmosphere and the dishes.  A fun filled food truck, bright exciting, some image animation. Achitectual design, interior design, understated, white or muted background, let the images of the designs do the talking. In all types, easy on the text, especially on the  home page. When it comes to websites a picture is worth far more than a thousand words,

My own personal site?  I am a storyteller and photographer, so I have a lot of words and my design it is a bit of both, bold and calming. I added just a bit of pizazz to  the home page. I would not consider it, built on Avenue,  to be a minimalist style site,  not like the Avenue demo itself. Both can be seen here and I think this  is an example of how you can build a site that is  really unique  starting with a Squarespace template.
