Minimalist art movement which originated in 20th century focuses more on the bare essentials than unnecessary showiness.  Relating to web designing, we can define it as using the least amount of images, colours, shapes etc…, making the design highly simple.  In these designs you can see only the bare fundamentals needed to convey the message, and no gaudiness at all.
