Flat design can be seen as the more sophisticated cousin of minimalism —all design elements are centered on the idea of simplicity. However, the simplicity of flat design is hard to achieve — everything should be designed with the same goal in mind to create a cohesive visual and functional design.
Let’s look at what you can do to make flat design works for your users.
Web design has been changing rapidly in the last years. Minimalist design, clear structures, and stunning visuals have become the norm, while text is kept to a minimum and illustrates the visuals on a given site. The background of a website has gained new importance and often times becomes the main point of the user’s focus.
While earlier websites did not really have a significant background because the content itself was considered to be the most important element of a site, this has changed in times of minimalist design.
The background has become prominent.
That’s why we decided to take an in-depth look at the different techniques of website backgrounds and design. I hope you enjoy the tour!
