Personal projects are fun, we all know that. They give us all the freedom to try things that would be more difficult if we had to consider all the constraints of a real project. For visual design it's an exercise that helps to explore different ideas. The issue I see is that if it's a pure visual design project it can be a bit unrealistic, unless you also have a prototype considering the different screen sizes and content degradation.

Web Design: Minimalistic Sites
"Less is more". That's what some people say... and they might be right. Usually, minimalistic sites are really beautiful, and even with few elements, they deliver us their message, and that's just what we need.
Even though we really like checking some cool sites with lots of elements, minimalistic sites tend to be more straight to the point, what give 'em lots of points. Also, these sites look really fancy like that. Anyways, here is my selection on minimalistic sites. Hope you all like it. Cheers! ;)
