Trends come and go, minimalism stays. The minimal design has been popular for a while and it seems that the flat concept is taking the minimalist approach to next level. Minimal design is easier for people to “read” and take in. A minimal UI approach will reduce or eliminate special effects such as color gradients and drop shadows behind icons.

Minimal design benefits:

  • Screen is not cluttered with extraneous and confusing details;
  • Easy to understand the purpose of each element;
  • People can navigate the app without needing to consult a user manual;
  • The easier it is to use the app, the more engaged your users will be.
