Web Design: Flat Layouts

Web Design: Flat Layouts

Lately we've seen the uprise of a design trend that is simply fantastic. Being quite simple, the flat design actually adds up to the aesthetics of websites that try to focus on content. So I've selected a few websites that really rock nice flat layouts, like these below. What do you think about this trend? Is it something that will stay for a long time, or will the next wave kill it for good? Also, if you know any other flat layout websites, drop a comment! Cheers. ;) Cole Townsend Phil Stringfellow Coloured Lines Site Leaf Currency Courtney & Andrew Triplagent Wistia Mud OnSite Foundation Layer Vault Designer News Applove Mightytext Envato Unroll.Me Dropscan

Design Trends 2013 - Flat and Minimal

Design Trends 2013 - Flat and Minimal

One of the new trends in terms of digital design, especially interface design, is the return of simple, flat and typographical design. We can say that Microsoft might have started that back in 2007 when they launched the Zune with its beautiful typographic based interface. Despite the failure of the product, that UI was improved and applied to the Windows Phone and Windows 8 interface design. The iOS on the other hand was always heavily based on photorealistic textures and depth by using gradients, glossy style effects and shadows, however we started to see more and more apps for all platforms adopting a more minimalistic approach. ZUNE 2007/2008 There are lots of reasons to adopt a flat design, one of the most important is scalability. When designing for multiple devices it's important to consider ways to optimize the design. For instance, when using solid colors and less image based UI the number of assets necessary to create an app or a website is much lower and therefore the footprint of the app/website much smaller. In this post we want to feature some beautiful designs that illustrate this trend.
