Web site designing is undergoing a fast change with all the smaller digital devices like mobile phones picking up the internet. The buzz words we hear recently are ‘minimalism’ ‘responsive’ and ‘flat design’. Large companies like Microsoft started embracing flat design concepts and naturally we are going to witness everyone following the same. This concept is not a new one and the trend towards ‘flat’ is resurging slowly on top to stay there for many years to come.
Previously, best web designing means bombarding the users with a stunning interface, packed with animations and flashy elements. After this web designer tried to bring real life into the screen with drop shadows and faux-realistic textures. Now is the time for ‘Flat Design’ to rule the scene.
Flat Design has within it the concepts of ‘minimalism’ and ‘responsive’ attitude. With this design, users can concentrate on the content without any distraction. The main focus of flat design is the usability. At the same time, flat design does not mean just dull, ‘content only’ design.
The central idea to keep in mind while designing flat designed website is ‘simplicity’. Designers must not deviate from this central concept. They must adhere this rule to whatever feature they are implementing.
Use vivid and vibrant colors to design the site. Designers can refer the ‘Flat UI Colors’ online tool as a guide for selecting right color modes. Though bright colors are attractive, it is not a compulsory feature for flat design. Plain colors or just black and white is also enough to come out with a good flat designed website. The underlying concept is sophistication and pleasing appearance.
In good typography usage ‘sans serif’ font face ensures clear and crisp appearance. The content presented must be precise and to the point. All elements of User Interface such as links and buttons must be noticeably distinct.
