Graphics, User Interfaces "In this article I'm going to talk about what flat design is, review what other designers are saying about it, and offer some tips on how to achieve it in your own designs." I give you one attempt to guess which 'design aesthetic' the next version of OSNews is inspired by. And yes, we will eventually get it done.

To be honest, I think I'm firmly in the middle.

I don't like skeuomorphism, but I also find flat design to be unpalatable.

I suppose what I'm looking for is more along the lines of my GTK+ and Qt themes. Subtle use of subdued gradients, shadows, and curves to provide an interface that's consistent and non-distracting but, at the same time, doesn't remind me of how much work I've put into making Motif applications like DDD and Tk applications like git-gui less off-putting.
