At the end of the 2010s, we have seen minimalism growing. The world of digital is dominated by flat design. And the designers at Lapsus Next believe that the trend is only going to intensify as we enter the 2020s.

“As we see the current market and current psychology of the users – the design will continue to move from minimalism to flat design. Flat design is basically the upgraded version of the minimal design system. The characters can now express a lot more than they used to and this definitely helps to connect with the audience.” says the Creative Director of Lapsus Next.

Adding to this the web designer of Lapsus Next says “The colours will also be in perfect blent in the flat design system. This will, in turn, make the design stand out and speak to the crowd.”
