One of the hottest trend in Website Designs, Icon Designs and Graphic Designs nowadays is Flat Design Concept. Flat designs concise of design elements with no shadows, textures, fake leather and gradients. When a new trend arrives, designers allow their emotions take control. Sure this cool new “trend” might be “hot,” however thinking about things in long term is the smarter thing to do. Just because all the cool kids are doing it, doesn’t mean you should.

Recently, there is a little new trend emerging in the design community, which I assume started off when designers were trying to fix iOS 7 outlandish icons. Jeff Escalante, the one who initiate this trend discussion, called it Long Shadow Design.

The long shadow concept which gives an entire flat design elements a sense of depth, yet still maintains the flat look of the object. Check out this 20 Best Example of Long Shadow in Icon and Graphic Designs that are created by designers around the Design Community.
