Making it Work: Flat Design and Color Trends

Making it Work: Flat Design and Color Trends | Web Design Education | Scoop.it

Via Hannes

Hannes's curator insight, April 29, 2013 2:23 PM

Flat web design obviously has benefits for both web and mobile users. Grid based layouts are scalable and easy to choreograph, modular graphics maximize both visual surfaces and interactive areas, and distinct typography is readable on small screens. On the other hand, it's also a challenge because flat web design is (almost) a completely web based design language. It feels like Internet grew some confidence as a virtual reality, and decided to break free from the limitations of our natural environment. So in contrast to skeuomorphism, it lacks references outside the digital domain like textures, buttons, depths and shadows. And if the design patterns are not mapped to the users' previous knowledge intuition will be lost. Consequently, I'm waiting for the world to decide if it's is just a trend that will pass by or if it's a new web standard. Is it time to let go of old notions, accept the digital medium and base graphics on design languages like flat web design?

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, April 30, 2013 12:20 AM

We are seen more and more websites doing a redesign and using flat design as the layout for the site.
