Transcript: Flat design is a more simplistic, digital sense of design. I think this design will be popular for a long time because it is so universal and simple that the images can be recognized easily worldwide. However, the lack of drop shadows has been something criticized by designers and may make it more difficult for users to click on digital buttons. I believe that the simplicity and minimalistic aspect of this design will make it adaptable for future uses. FLAT Design originated in the 1950s and 1960s. The first digital appearance of the design was in 2006 in the Microsoft Zune mp3 player. What is Flat Design? Color Palette Microsoft was the first to use this style of design. It clashed with Apple's iOS Skeuomorphic design. It came from this design that Apple made popular and attempted to oppose all of these 'artificial' design techniques. It is inspired by International Typographic Style (Swiss Style), Modernism, and styles emerging from Bauhaus. A minimalistic design approach that emphasizes usability. It represents crisp edges, open space, and bright colors. There are only two-dimensional and flat design identifies applications as simple, icon-like images. There is a clear separation between technology and tactile objects. Flat Design is not ornamental; it is very minimalistic. The bright colors make it so the design is not boring and still grab the viewer's attention. The simple, vibrant images make it so everyone can easily understand them and indicate universal actions. Conclusion Flat Design owes a lot of inspiration from Swiss design. However, Flat design is much more based on digital platforms. It is dominated by sans-serif typography and flat images that reside on internet and digital based environments. Swiss design was not entirely flat, it had depth and perspective to its design. This created the very grid-like pattern that the style takes on. Google is also a well-known user of this style Windows 8 is the forefront of the Flat design trend. What makes Flat Design unique?

Flat Design

Transcript: Characteristics of Flat Design Flat Design This web-design style became popular around 2012. It is still widely used today. However, the excessive use of this style can cause serious usability problems. One of the biggest usability issues introduced by flat design is the lack of signifiers on clickable elements. Sources: Since flat design is simple by nature, avoid trying to make its elements look realistic. It works well with an overall minimalist design approachso simple color and text may be enough. If you want to add visuals, opt for simple photography. Simple Elements The biggest player in Flat Design, and the first one to popularize this trend is Microsoft. Flat design makes things free from distractions, eliminating heavy background images, swirls, and grunge that makes everything cluttered. It’s very easy to navigate, since there are no more gradients, drop shadows, glows and bevels. It puts more focus on the text, making everything readable from big screens down to mobile. Another thing about flat design is its simple mobile interface. The buttons are easy to tap on mobile devices and there is no need for zooming to find links. Found Them First Color is also an important aspect of flat design. In fact, flat design color palettes are often much brighter and more colorful than those for other sites. Color palettes for flat design projects often contain many more hues as well. While most color palettes focus on two or three colors at most, flat design palettes may use six to eight colors equally. Flat design does not use any type of decoration and effects such as bevels, emboss, gradients, or shadows. Every element such as button and image frame is crisp and lacks shadows and there are not tricks that will make it appear 3D. Minimalist Approach PROS OF USING FLAT DESIGN As we've said earlier,the excessive use of this style can cause serious usability problems and one of the biggest usability issues introduced by flat design is the lack of signifiers on clickable elements. If you are also the type of person who wants a lot of decoration, then flat design is not appropriate for you because it will limit the tricks that you want to use. Focus on Color WHAT ARE THE CONS? No design outline is perfect. It has pros but it will always have its cons. Whether it will be useful or not for the user depends on how the web developer will choose a design that is appropriate on what he/she wants to convey through his/her content. In short, the level of the design's usefulness and practicality differs and the design can be chosen based on particular requirements. Flat design(Flat UI) is a style of interface design without any stylistic elements that give the illusion of three dimensions (such as excessive use of drop shadows, gradients or textures). Instead, it is focused on a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors. Here are some websites that use flat design Focus on Typography Flat Design Community Building Websites Typography is a very important aspect because of the simple nature of flat design. The tone of the typography should match the overall design scheme because a highly decorated font might look unconventional against a super-simple design. A simple sans serif type family with plenty of variations and weights is one of the suitable fonts in flat design. You can add a touch of a novelty font but be careful not to go overboard with your decoration. Writer/Author's Website Flat design has simple user interface elements. The buttons and icons are simple shapes and they are easy to click or tap. Because the user interface elements doesn't have a lot of in-design explanation, the interaction is intuitive for the users.

The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
