Flatness Meets Geometry

While this post is specifically about hexagon designs, geometric shapes in general are huge right now, right alongside the “flat” design trend that has taken the world by storm. Personally, I’m all for both of them. I love the way simple geometric shapes create subtle pattens and guidelines for the eyes to follow, and I’m really glad that we’re getting away from the skeumorphic look that dominated the web/app world(s) for so long.

Conclusion

As you can see, hexagons are quite popular nowadays, but this trend (like any other) will likely fade out just as quickly as it came about. In any case, there are many creative ways to use hexagons, or any geometric shape for that matter, in your design projects and it’s a great way to add a very modern look to your work. Just like any other trend, though, you should explore this carefully and put your own spin on it. Don’t just add a hexagon to your next project for the sake of adding one. Make sure it serves a purpose and fits the overall tone of project.

What are your thoughts on the geometric trend(s) that are sweeping the world of design? Do you like it? Why or why not. Sound off in the comments below or hit me up via the usual social channels. Thanks for reading!

  1. I love hexagonal shapes in design! Add those shapes to a simple, clutter free web design and the project is bound to be successful. People are think are attracted to the honeycomb shape, at least find it aesthetically pleasing. I read somewhere that people prefer logos that use the hexagonal shape over logos with other shapes. Nice article. Thanks!
