How to Make Your Website More Effective with Less on it
Did you know that you can still make your website effective even with a minimal design? Others call it as a minimalist website.

This infographic presents some benefits of minimalist web design. Featuring a list structure, each point is accompanied by an illustrated icon and some explanatory text. This structure can work effectively for infographics, but in this case, the balance is a bit off. The icons—of varying illustration styles—don't necessarily access the content at hand. The content's subheads are effective in conveying the points, but the accompanying explanatory text contains some inconsistencies in tone and punctuation that lessen the overall impact. Finally, the infographic's overall narrative seems a bit muddled. While the title introduces the idea of actionable tips for website effectiveness, the content itself focuses more on the benefits of minimalist websites. Right now, there are a lot of elements here that could combine to produce a persuasive, impactful message, but it needs a bit more clarity to achieve its goals. We'd give this an F.
