Abstract

Smartphones and computers are the most usable communicative tools in modern times. This urged the need to develop software, webpages and mobile applications that work as a mediator between users and devices. This is in addition to user interfaces (UI) that need to be designed to help users while using these websites and mobile applications. In this paper, the researcher reviews the Flat design style and its use in UI design. Then, it studies Flat illustrations that are added to user interfaces to help users imagine things better, enhance the brand identity of the UI and make texts and interactions easier to understand. The researcher then reviewed samples of Flat illustrations done for universal user interfaces. Finally, a practical study was made to examine the importance of using Flat illustrations in mobile app’s UI. Through which the researcher could reach to the final results and conclusions via analysis of outputs.
