Flat 2.0 or Google’s Material Design?
For years now, we have had this ongoing controversy on Flat Design Vs Skeuomorphism. One trend that puts an end to this is Flat 2.0. Imagine the combination of elements of Flat, along with subtle shadows, highlights and layers; that’s Flat 2.0 for you. Flat 2.0 introduces bright colours, flat buttons and simple body copy styles which give room for images and call to actions.

Just when the critics were arguing about how the flat design has gone too far by removing most of the skeuomorphs, enter Google’s Material Design. It consists of countless intriguing features. But one thing that sets this apart from the others is its use of Z-axis. It is designed to be universally acceptable and responsive to all types of screen shapes and sizes.
