In order to stay fresh, productive, and imaginative, every artist needs to take a small break from time to time and go on a quest for inspiration. Thankfully, the internet is full of intriguing designs and exciting new concepts that can easily get those creative juices flowing again. If you’re stuck with a web design that just doesn’t seem to work, try to draw some inspiration from these 15 vegan recipe blogs whose clean design perfectly captures the “less is more” principle.
This hyperlinked image is intentionally positioned as the dominant object on the page and aims to spark your interest to read on further. Even the title of the blog is pushed to the right so as not to interfere with the image’s authority.
When it comes to the color scheme, you can see that the blog utilizes the fairly common unintrusive black and white contrast that clearly defines all the objects on the page like the three main buttons. Of course, the lovely cursive logo on the right links back to the homepage to facilitate the navigation.
Also, speaking of navigation, notice how the designers consciously decided not to use a traditional navigation bar at the top but opted for presenting various sections on the right, next to the breathtaking images. Overall, the entire website design is clean, minimalistic and, most importantly, appetizing.Now, let’s look at a website called Jennifer’s Kitchen. The first thing you notice on the homepage is actually the color-scheme. Again, a clean white background that allows all of the elements to stand out and a blue-orange color scheme.
One of the most important aspects of every clean design is alignment and the vegan vlog called Hot for Food demonstrates it beautifully. After the logo and the navigation bar, all that the visitor sees is a grid of various dishes with a fair bit of space between them. The key here is in the perfect alignment of the images. Not only is it pleasing to the eye, but it also creates a sense of order and harmony, often associated with a vegan diet.
