A brief history of flat design


Flat UI has its roots in the minimalist art movement beginning in the 1920s in Northern Europe and reached its heyday in the mid-twentieth century in Swiss design. It featured sans-serif typography, grids, and asymmetrical layouts. This new design trend used simplicity as a method of conveying clear messages. In this era, people began to look at the text content and type as the most important aspect of the design. This was about the time of the invention of new typefaces such as Helvetica.
