When Flat Design Falls Flat



Flat design is the most popular trend in UI design right now.

Superficially, flat design is simple:

  1. Don’t use gradients, shadows and textures
  2. Use simple shapes, bold colors and clear typography

I believe that a few prominent flat designs sacrifice usability and best practices such as consistency for the sake of aesthetics — and this is what I’ll primarily be talking about. But first, I’d like to discuss flat design in a historical context.
