Long Shadow seems to be the hottest trend lately, it's everywhere specially if you look through design communities like dribbble, and behance. On this post I will show a few samples of long shadow, will also have some freebies and show you how to create your very own long shadow. It seems like this effect came around to reinforce the "flat" design that everyone has been seeing, it's the wave of trends and we want you in the loop. It's most common on icon design and small illustrations as you will see on this post.

Last week we posted about one of the design styles we believe will be trendy in 2013. In this post we would like to feature another trend that has already been established and is evolving alongside with the technology that makes it possible. The trend, editorial/magazine style with big images, and more specifically, dark color schemes. It's mind boggling to think that a few years ago most of the sites featured after the jump wouldn't be made using web standards (HTML/CSS/JS) but Flash. Evidence proves that constraints are uber important for the evolution of not only the technology but the designers and engineers behind the scenes..
