I always love looking at great website design in the real world. Textbook examples of topics can be great for illustrating a point, but there’s nothing like the real thing. An example like this one—the portfolio website for interface designer Nick Jones—shows how beautiful a minimalist design can be.
But by avoiding some overly strict implementation of the concept we can find a fresh and stunning design. A design like this needs nothing more, and yet there is nothing to take away. Truly inspiring and motivating to look at.
