Occasionally we see an adjustment in style trends. we tend to positively will say that the last few years we’ve been seeing more moderate configuration around us, flat style. All the large players like Apple iOS and Google robot have currently lost their shadows and hard gradients. They’ve replaced it with onerous components.
We frequently simply talk about level outline when all is said in done, yet inside of each configuration pattern we see a great deal of outline components which we see more regularly than others. Other than the shadows, inclines, designs, and so forth that didn’t make the end of the year we have seen more patterns showing up: less complex and more moderate client interfaces, more advanced shading palettes, obscured and translucent components, better utilization of pictures, activitys in the middle of screens and components, criticism and better utilization of motions.
Simplified User Interface
Level configuration depends on the standard of “concentrating on effortlessness and clarity to simplicity usefulness and stress convenience”. We have seen effortlessness and clarity in visual outline dialects however this pattern additionally has influenced the association architect, who is working a stage prior in the configuration chain. We have seen that the client interfaces are getting less difficult and more moderate also. We regularly plan to give our clients as much data as we can, however we have to question ourselves: would we say we are making it clearer for our clients with this data?
Colors have been always a part of every design and it always has been an important design element. When we were still designing according to the skeuformistic style trend, we were also using realistic and hard colours.
Blurred, transparent elements
When Apple introduced iOS 7 they introduced a new trend as well. iOS uses overlaying layers or elements that are transparent and blurres the underlying layer or elements. Or how Apple calls it: translucent UI elements.
Use of images
“Pictures are faster than words”, is how Android is calling it in their Design Guidelines. We can compare it to traffic signs, people can recognize a sign faster that reading a short line of text. The last year we saw less boring lists, and more image based lists or list with a clear icon that says what kind of content the user will get after tapping the item.
Animations is a way to go further than ‘only’ delivering a beautifully designed app. It has proven to make the interaction between user and device more intense. iOS had implemented several animations in 2013 such as swiping between pages in Safari. Android has gone a bit further in implementing animations in their latest update. The system is adaptive and gives the users feedback when they tap on a list item for instance.
