Flat design is driven by a desire for a more efficient and user-friendly interface. That's the idyllic purpose of flat design, but the current reality is so disconnected from it. While there are plenty of great examples of flat design(like the ones featured in this list), there are also plenty of bad flat design sample.

The Evolution Of Icon Design From 1981 - 2013

With the GUI having now been around for over 40 years, today we are taking a look back in time at the evolution of an integral feature - the icon.
Since the early 70's, when bitmapped screens were first developed with GUI's, the humble icon has come a long way. This is by no means, a complete list of all the icons in every OS between 1983-2013, however I have hand-picked designs that have the most significance and popularity in icon design.
