Because while the trend in website design does seem to be towards that (and some sites using it look absolutely fantastic), it seems an awfully large amount of communities and other sites seem to completely mess up minimalist designs and end up with a terrible looking site as a result. Indeed, quite a few seem to forget that 'minimalist' doesn't mean 'site style with every colour replaced by white and grey'. Like vBulletin 5 and its attempt at a 'layout'. Or Digitalspy and its somewhat empty looking new site design. Or Moby Games and its style that was so bad it scared away most of the userbase until they changed it back. Or Admin Fusion, which for years had a rather awful looking style that seemed to have all the 'soul' sucked right out of it. So what do you think? Is minimalism something that a lot of designers seem to get wrong, especially those working for large companies? Do a lot of sites kind of miss the point of it and attempt to implement it in a bad way, with terrible results?
