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.

In general I find the current trend towards 'flat' design akin to everyone buying their furniture from ikea. It might work for some, but too much just looks cheap.

Personally, I think Call to Action Buttons should somewhat lift out of the page. I think last.fm site a few years ago was spot on for me.

I think everything can be overdone too much, I hate the new VS2012 and when I have to use it, I will be skinning it back to the 2008 style.
