Hah, I just finished a flat redesign from mid-2000s skeuomorphic interface. Redoing the logo / favicons is that last thing...



Too bad you didn't have a legacy "flat design" from the early 90s still at hand, saves time when changing trends every 10-15 years..


That's how you can tell flat isn't just a trend - it's going back to what worked, after years of doing rounded corners and drop shadows because we can and never stopping to wonder whether we should. There's a lost decade in web design, but hopefully we're now starting to recover from it.


Ironically the site design is 90s-browser friendly (maybe with tables vs. divs) but the new JS features are not.

That reminds me, I want to browse the site on lynx and see what happens...
