Realistic Designs.

Our soul craves for good design. That’s why sometimes when you use a product you feel it is a great one. Why? because it is a reflection of who we are and what we need. Good design is a reflection of us.

There was a time when everyone thought the world was flat. In recent years, creatives have applied the same theory to design but now creatives are pushing back. Forward thinking designers are experimenting with ways to combine the best of flat design with realism – which embraces three – dimensional elements that closely mirror real life – to create a new style that’s all their own. The future is the best of both worlds, we are seeing designers enter a brave new world that combines the best of both realism and flat design. By pairing 3D objects and textures with minimalistic elements, they bridge and gap between the simplicity of flat design and the visual complexity and uniqueness of realism. The new methods results in images that are more interesting to the eye. It forces viewers to stop and take a brief moment to digest what they see. It gives the mind a reason to linger a bit longer in that visual space. I believe that combining realism and flat design appeals to our modern culture of curiosity. Flat design, while clear and simply to digest doesn’t have much mystery. By bringing elements of realism into the picture the audience can experience the sense of wonder that comes from great works of art, the feeling that makes and stop and says,” How did they do that?”

This trend creates a truly modern twist by taking two different design elements and mashing them up. Designer that embrace the new style welcome the opportunity to elevate the flat, more minimal design they already do so well. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. Trying to get to that state with our products and services is the first of the ultimate goal of design.
