How to Create Flat Icons in Photoshop

Posted in Icons, Tutorials, Web Interface8 months ago • Written by 13 Comments

Okay, let’s face it. Flat design is the new ‘thing’ for web interface. With iOS and even Windows now adapting this design scheme, it will not be any longer when almost (if not all) all websites in the World Wide Web adapt this design scheme. You would just be baffled to know one morning that as you woke up, opened your browser and typed in your favorite website (we hope it is 1stwebdesigner, just kidding!) and be surprised to see that it followed with the trend of flat design! So you would immediately re-code your website or blog, for that matter, to be ‘in’ with the trend, and that would entail a lot of grueling hours again.

So why not start today? Why not start your web motif revamp today? Try to be there before it happens. Try to be cool before being cool is cool. Be a hipster!

You may be thinking, “Where will I start?” Of course, revamping your website design is hellish as hell is. But that’s why we are here – so that you’ll have a helping hand in going with the flow of design. Right?
