The invasion of minimal style in web design has caused an uneven situation when minimal design has been glorified from each corner of the web. Young designers consider working with the clean style/minimal designs to be the only ultimate approach, what we want to say with today's post is that the world is bigger than just that and that in a lot of cases cluttered/magazine-style designs can also look great.

So the big point is that this style we're talking about today is widely used by many respected web projects, but it's quite underrated by the web design community. This is a cluttered, piled style which is presented by mostly online magazines and news agencies websites. We've tried to collect some original examples of cluttered designs in this little showcase and we strongly believe these examples will prove our point. When you need to deliver tons of information from the home page to your visitors there is no place for minimal solution because you must use every single pixel very wisely and prudently.

For those skeptic people that adore minimal style we want to demonstrate the aesthetics of the well-designed websites with good usability and tons of various items on a single page. It is a very difficult task to create such websites because you must keep the right ratio in putting together many various items and implementing design elements at the same time. The examples below prove that cluttered designs have their own unique charm and we hope you'll take all the best features from these to use them in your work.
