Just a Trend

Over the past 18 months, flat, 2d design elements are everywhere. And employing a minimalist aesthetic has clearly become the current trend. But it’s just a trend.

So too is neon.

Making interface designs that are easier to understand and use should always be our goal. But let’s not confuse stylistic choices with the fundamental principles of design.

Stylistic trends come and go. But beautiful, simple, functional design is timeless. With or without drop shadows.

So before anyone commits the beveled button to the waste bin of history, just remember…neon.
