Flat design meets GoodBarber


Flat design is The new way to create in the graphic world ;)
In this article we're going to give you some informations about this new trend.

You have probably already heard about it... Apple and iOS7, or Microsoft with Windows 8?    Yes?    You got it!

What's a flat design?

As its name implies, flat design is defined by flatness of style: simplifying an interface by removing extra elements like shadows, textures, reflections, etc. and using solid colour.
"Less is more" can be a simple definition of flat design.

The difference between flat design and skeuomorphism

This is the Skeuomorphism definition in wikipedia: "A skeuomorphis is a derivative object that retains ornamental design cues to a structure that were necessary in the original."

Meaning that the graphic of the icon integrates familiar elements to make it as close as possible to the shape of the object in the real life.

We invite you to check a good example of the difference between skeuomorphism and flat design icons (iOS6 and iOS7).
As we said in the tittle GoodBarber also provides some flat design themes!
We presented last month few of them :

- One flat
- Asian Touch
- Space
- Coming
- Diamond  

They are all in flat design to let our users enjoy this new trend ;)
Use them as a good start to create a beautiful app!
