2. Use color wisely for an effective eye-cathing website.
When people here minimalist, they think black and white! Now… even though black & white happen to be one of our favourit colours here at Wild Heart, minimalist websites do not have to adopt one color or a black & white color scheme.
Even using one color, you can also change color opacity, use color gradients, add color shapes to make your designs different.
It is recommended that only one, two or three colors are used in a website design.
