Flat vs Skeuomorphism, and good design.

Hola, So I have been advising clients away from skeuomorphism in thier designs. You may ask, “Why would you do that, skeuomorphism is dope.” and your right it is cool, but when we go to production the tangental aspect is quickly overshadowed by business needs and dynamic integration quickly blows up budgets. It looks great in the comp, but many times ends up getting scrapped in production.

I love design for design sake, (it’s called art) and in time skeuomorphism design will settle into a nice place so will “flat”. “Flat” for now, will be the new rounded corner. It will be used in places it’s not needed and everything will look like a 50’s ad campaign. This “flat” idea will spin itself out as a new style emerges and replaces “flat”. Maybe a representative monochromatic style (super flat), or using only CSS3 (code flat), or pure line work (anti flat). The great thing is good design will persist..

Skeuomorphism, Flat, flat design, Calander design Css3, html5,

I would love to talk about the Save button next….
