Material design & Flat design can be distinguished from each other after considering the amount of skeuomorphism present in both of them, therefore it is first important to understand what skeuomorphism means. The term skeuomorphism is design that has been created to emulate the physical world.
For example, synthesizer programs are made to resemble the keyboard and similar work is done with various other online tools. It has been a part of web design and interface design for quite a long time and are extensively used by web designers. Every leading web development company in Mumbai is aware the use and individual strengths of both these designs and utilize them as per need. The design fraternity decided to remove all the decorative elements and focus more on usability and user needs and a better emphasis on loading speed.
Flat design focuses on colour, typography and icons, while removing textures, gradients, drop shadows thus stripping design of 3D effects. It can be termed as an easy to understand design style that has been built for the exclusive use of digital media as it is incorporated with basic colour themes, simple icons and buttons. The emphasis on functionality makes flat design different from material design as appearance takes a back seat for a good reason. It helps designers to speed up loading times and looks good on any screen, immaterial of the resolution it offers which is one of the primary reasons of being preferred by every leading web designing services in Mumbai.
Material design, on the other hand, has a veritable range of unique features, the most prominent one being the Z axis. It is one form of flat design that has an added dash of skeuomorphism and resembles 2D planes hovering over each other at an elevated height. We are a leading digital marketing company in Mumbai and we bring together an appealing combination of features from both the designs while crafting world class websites for our clients.
