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.

I have to agree. Light and depth are babies I would rather not throw out with the skeomorphic bath water.

It is especially useful in a windowing interface to have some idea of depth.

Also flat interfaces are falsely seen as non-skeomorphic. Just swapping real world objects and textures for real world signs, posters and screen print style flat tones are equally skeomorphic.
