Last year saw the rise of flat design, with the method taking over icons and more. The trend doesn't look like it's going anywhere soon, with plenty of superb examples of flat design done right (opens in new tab) and continuous flat design projects - one of which is this latest offering from Brazilian designer Leandro Urban (opens in new tab).
So, what is flat design (opens in new tab)? Basically, it's a minimalistic design approach that emphasizes usability. It features clean, open space, crisp edges, bright colours and two-dimensional/flat illustrations. This latest project sees those aesthetics applied to the World Cup team shields.
Including every team taking part in this year's competition, Urban has showcased the likes of Brazil, Argentina, England and France in the minimal flat design style. Do you think the design is improved from the original or would you like flat design to disappear? Let us know!
