Flat design trend/typography

p4

Flat design. It rolled in with iPhones and Windows 8. It’s been here for a bit, and  it’s starting to gain some speed and acceptance. So what is flat design really? Well, we’ve talked about shadows, and beveling, and perception (maybe)…Flat design is the exact opposite. It is literally just the text/image without shadows, depth, 3D, or extreme gradients. It pulls from typography, grid, and color.

Flat design is taking off because it is multi-platform friendly.  It works. It works on print, web and responsive design. It transfers well between all. It uses white space to make things easy on the eyes, and easy to read.

Here, in this article- http://www.hyperarts.com/blog/the-life-and-times-of-flat-design/ – flat design is better defined.

What has me excited, is that typography is becoming a staple for this form of graphics, and by having that happen, typography is taking off again! I enjoy typography so!
