In the past, web designers’ focal point was on making websites with flashy illustrations and animations.
Then they shifted gears to bring the screen to life using faux-realistic textures, drop shadows, and real object characteristics.
Today, the new trend is flat design. Flat design is a minimalist design approach that places a lot of emphasis on usability. This trend features clean, open spaces with bright colors and flat illustrations. To convey quick messages, web designers use simple images. Images like icons can have universal actions or purposes so that everyone can understand them easily.
