If you haven’t noticed, there is a new trend in user interface design (UI) that is gaining in popularity : glassmorphism.
What defines glassmorphism?
- As its name implies, it recreates the look of frosted-glass by using transparency and background blur;
- a multi-layered approach with objects floating in space;
- colorful and vibrant colours are used in the background to accentuate the blurriness and transparency; and
- a subtle border applied on translucent objects for accentuating the glass effect.
Who came up with this trend?
The trend was started (unintentionally) by Michal Malewicz more than a year ago.
