Always like a clean looking website. Good to see in your examples that they don’t just have to be white either! Thanks for sharing this nice collection.

Superrr! I will save them :)

@Chris: For product packaging, there’s a lot of good gallery sites on the web (just do a quick Google search). I would recommend Creattica, and staying tuned on our other site, Design Instruct (we hope to cover packaging and print design more often there).

@alex mitchell: Blue, red, black — though admittedly the collection is very white and light-gray dominant.

The KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid) has never been more important. You may want to think about your homepage containing only 140 characters, soon people won’t be able to comprehend 141+!

girlfriend looks just perfect. Thanks for this input!

Any idea how they do the effects on Nizo’s homepage? Is it HTML5?

Excellent post! Exactly the thing I’ve tried to do with my site at http://www.stumason.com – doesn’t get much simpler than just text I reckon! :D

37 signals, an old classic but still stands out, great typography…

So basically, if you want clean, don’t use gradients! :)

Schild

Great designs. My favorites are hocus focus and food sense but the others are great, too!

Deciding simple is very easy but deciding CLEAN is not easy. It is very difficult to build a clean website. I define clean website as a compatible one for all the browsers without any issues which is a HELL kind of a job for a designer. Lately, I have seen any Clean HTMLs.

These designs are great. I see a lot of galleries featuring clean and simple designs but my only beef is that they’re often agency or freelancer sites.

What about commercial sites? It’s one thing when you’re working with five links, a logo and a tagline. It’s quite another when you need to work with ads (above the fold), extensive navigation and multiple calls-to-action like newsletter sign-ups. I’d like to see a gallery where designers had to overcome real world challenges and still produced something clean and simple. To me, that’s what separates design from art.

I really enjoy minimal/clean design. Thanks for sharing this great showcase…

I see a lot of whites, greys, some blues, oranges, and grey-browns. I’m also with Chris on this.

Creating beautiful, well balanced yet simple websites is a lot harder than it looks.

Great collection.

Really nice collections.

Great compilation. I really like simple and clear design but sometimes its so hard to keep it that way. Especially if client would like to have everything in his home page.

I always like simple and clean designs.

Being a minimalist myself I really enjoy these types of round-ups.
Less is more indeed! :)
