Flat colors are all the rage these days. They make websites and applications more beautiful and easy on the eyes.
So what are flat colors?
Colors and tints that are not formulated from standard process colors. Also, color that seems weak or lifeless. These colors focus more typography rather than the graphical element of a button or a background. They are more popular, because more easy on the eyes and simple. We use flat colors for most of our apps and clients love them.a
A fundamental part of designing an interface is defining a color palette. The color schemes used in flat design interfaces tend to be bolder and brighter than some other color palettes. Flat UI Colors was developed with this in mind and is a great place to check out some of the best (and most popular) colors being used in flat design today.
When picking a color palette, remember to think about how colors will help users navigate a site. Be sure to specify a color for the main actions on your website: buttons such as “Submit,” “Send,” “See More,” etc. should all be the same color, ideally a vivid one which will provide a strong contrast with the background. If your logo or brand has a main color, that should be the one used for the main controls. Don’t overuse it though, or you risk make it less important in the user’s eyes.
You should also choose a secondary button color, usually a light gray. That way you can line up two buttons, for example “Submit” and “Cancel”, with “Submit” as the main action and “Cancel” a secondary one. Color choice is especially important in flat design, because when you’re using flat buttons, these colors will be one of the main identifiers that help the user recognize them.
Remember, though flat designs are all the rage right now, the trend may change next year. Make sure you are up-to-date on the trends. Do not go overboard with the flat designs. You may like it, but your clients may not. Be open to any change.
