RedMoxy Minute: Why Simplicity Matters in Website Design

While you are creating your next website, ask yourself why simplicity matters in website design. Honestly. If you haven’t thought about it before think about it now. Here’s your first step: As you are gathering ideas for how you want your website to look, ask yourself, “What is the most important goal of this website?” If your website could only accomplish one purpose, what would that purpose be?

For an artist, that answer might be “to create a portfolio of my work.” For a small business, that might be “to show off my products.” For a non-profit, that might be “to build my newsletter subscriber list” or “to get people to donate.” Every organization is going to have a different main goal.

The trick for you is going to be to identify that goal and make it clear in your website. If you want to lead your site visitors to your list of products, your design choices and the layout of your site should lead people to the products you are trying to sell.

Simplicity provides clarity.

So, here’s what you do…

  1. Identify your site’s main goal
  2. Lead your site visitors toward your goal
  3. Purge your site of any unnecessary distractions
