FLAT DESIGN IS STILL TRENDY IN 2014
Apple has often influenced artistic direction in the last
few years, notably with skeuomorphism.
Last year it was Windows, Apple’s competitor, with
its colour blocks and simple icons: the first OS to
apply ‘flat design’.
Flat design takes inspiration from the 60s and wants
for the design of the site to be flat by removing all
the frills. No gradients, textures or drop shadows etc.
