Love it or hate it, flat (or almost flat) design is shaking up all aspects of the design industry. Some take its popularity as a sign of a new era, while others simply see it as the new challenger to skeuomorphic design. Whether or not it’s here to stay, however, it’s important to recognize the qualities that a flat approach can bring to a design. Even with as little design as possible, flat design has the potential to be a suitable path for your next project. So take a look at the examples below and see if it’s right for you!
