They just used colors in a refined manner and font style used was also mainly Sans Serif or Helvetica. Inspired by this type of designing, emerged the concept of minimal designing.

Ever since its beta offering in 1990, Google has given almost importance to simplicity in its interfaces.


As the name suggests Minimalism or Minimal Design is a technique of conveying more with minimum elements. You can call a design a minimal or flat design when it is subtle. That is devoid of stylized and glossy attributes.
