This was my first actual design for a website. Though, I have been learning HTML/CSS/jQuery for only a month, I did kind of like what I made.
But, it got rejected for being too minimalistic and I was said the minimalist design is not charming enough. I have looked at department of computer science websites from standford/MIT, and they all believe in getting the content out in a no non-sense manner.
So, does minimalist design really work, or as some article recently pointed out (http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1659020
), simplicity is over-rated?
