How to use MINIMALIST design to create professional content

How to use MINIMALIST design to create professional content | Machines Pensantes |

Sometimes less is more. Learn these simple tricks to take advantage the minimalist design trends in graphic design to create more professional presentations.

Aside from aesthetics, the beauty of design is that it helps the presenter to clarify messages and communicate more effectively with the viewing audience.    That is why presentations and infographics are highly effective means of communication (at least when created and presented properly).

One of the trending styles is called minimalism; it is an artistic movement that uses only minimal and basic elements.  Think of your iPhone’s clean and crisp interface and its flat use of icons and shapes.

In this article we’re going to show you how you can improve your communication skills through minimalist design which will help you create better Presentations, infographics and other forms of rich content.

By extension in pretty much everyday language, minimalism is associated with everything that has been reduced to essentials and presents no accessories; no clutter, no depth, no bells and whistles.  Just the necessities.

The intention of minimalism is to generate meaning from the minimum. This requires simplifying the design, using pure colors and simple flat elements.  The “Less is More” statement definitely holds true here.

10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic] | Machines Pensantes |

Want your website to look great on smartphones, tablets, PCs and even TVs? Learn how to go fully responsive.


The Web and the mobile browsers remain one of the top ways that users interact with websites and if they have trouble on their smartphone, there is a good chance they are not coming back.

That’s where responsive design can help.

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television...
