Highly interactive, complex, and thoroughly animated websites in bright, engaging colors are fun and cool. However, they don’t always work for some people. Sometimes, the simpler, cleaner, and fuss-free ones are better aids to decision-making especially when it comes to sales and purchases. So while the endgame is supposedly a sale for your brand, the overly blinking and ginormous “buy me” button in fluorescent green might only turn out to be counterproductive.
And that’s why we understand the reason behind the need for simple, clean themes that may not be as cool as complex and futuristic themes, but are always reliable and functional. Here’s a roundup of our best clean themes for 2015:
