Graphics, User Interfaces "In its desire for authenticity, the Modern design movement curbed the ornamental excess of the 19th century, making design fit the age of mass production. Today, we're seeing the same desire for authenticity manifest itself in the 'flat' trend, which rejects skeuomorphism and excessive visuals for simpler, cleaner, content-focused design."

How is removing textures and shadow and reliefs makes anything "authentic"?


You have to understand that they mean it in a design lingo sense.

For example, you can have fonts that are "human", or "humanist". I have no idea what that's supposed to mean, other than some design bollocks that tries to make itself sound more important than it is.
