Pre-made templates can help to give your videos an added dimension. In this article we've put together some of the best flat design After Effects templates on VideoHive to help you bring the flat design metaphor to any video project.
Rachel Shillcock defines the flat design trend this way: "Flat design is just that; design that comes without extra depth embellishments such as textures, (obvious) gradients or 3D aspects and is instead replaced with a more “flat” aesthetic that is very clean and crisp." Sven Lenaerts says "flat design uses simple elements and shapes combined with predominantly bright colors to emphasize simplicity and clarity."
Sounds great, right? For certain videos, a flat aesthetic is just the right thing to complete the look.
