The noise about “flat design”


Recently, this term called “flat design” has popped up in web-design. And, in this post, I’m going to tell very little about it.

FLAT DESIGN

With the recent emergence of iOS 7, Jony Ive has redesigned it in a way in which it is very simple yet attractive. I, myself, find that I am attracted towards iOS 7 more than 6. I don’t know about you, but I certainly like flat design.

DEFINITION

In simple terms, Flat design is a way of designing things in which you strip out all the flashy stuff to make the thing look clean, simple as well as elegant.

Now, that is a very simple definition of what flat design is, and this is a very simple post touching upon it.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ?

Well, as of now, this is the list:-

  • In the product(website, OS, app, etc.) you are designing, try to strip out as many parts of the product as possible and yet maintain the functionality.
  • Look at example (given later) and try to learn from them.
  • Don’t be jealous of others

EXAMPLES

I must say, this is the most awesome set of flat design elements. A must check out for anyone who is willing to start flat design.

Another great example showcasing flat design.

This is a blog post from Mashable! But it is quite a list! 36 items, there’s got to be something there you’ll love.

WRAPUP

So, in this post, you learned something about flat design. Well, I myself will try to implement it in my work. This is something to look forward to.

Now the question is, how will you implement it? Tell me in the comments below.
