November 16 Meeting — More Flatness

The next meeting of the PACS Web Design Special Interest Group will be this Saturday, November 16, in the 9-10 hour. Our topic this month will be “More Flatness.”

We started on flat design last month, looking briefly at the concept of skeuomorphic design, particularly as used in early versions of Apple’s operating systems. There is a trend away from this design approach toward “flat” design. We will look at some examples of flat design in websites. We will then demo a flat design navigation menu that uses tiles (think Microsoft’s Windows 8).

Our example will use Google fonts, CSS positioning, a CSS sprite, and the nth-child selector. It will be a refresher for some and new material for others, so we will see how far we get in one hour.
