    Web design, part of the larger discipline of graphic design, is a tool to show or advertise a specific content not to create a container which distracts from this aim. I therefore believe that the best websute designs are the minimalist ones. Yes, a
    Apple is a great example. You see their products and perceive their brand. We, at Turchini Design, believe that the message is bigger than the messanger.
