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.
