Tip: Clean, minimalist design is highly appealing but can be difficult to execute well, especially in the early days of business. Every detail counts—be judicious with the quantity of words on a page, and select your imagery, icons and fonts with care. Be careful not to oversimplify your look, as you risk being bland and forgettable.
