I am designing a poster and saw recently a bunch of designs using very thin white font and some thin logo illustration-type ordeal on a dark background. A lot of these seem to be on a sort of "sky-like" background and many have used objects that look like mountains.

The only example I can think of is from Monument valley-

enter image description here

But I know there are a large number of people who have used this style in video games, websites, etc. Is there a name for this? What are some other really clean examples for inspiration?

    Can you be more specific? Do you have other images or can you note the precious characteristics of the style you're looking for?

I think the style is called Geometric Design or minimal design(even though not all of them use thin typeface)

search for geometric POSTER design, geometric WEBSITE design and geometric BROCHURE design on image search sites (pinterest & google images are my Go To sites for this) and you should get plenty of examples


you can also use the examples used in this article to see how and for what they have used such elements (I've learnt so much from this article)



Not too sure about the name of this style but I'd just describe it as flat gradient graphics.


isometric and flat!!!

When it comes to gameplay of monument valley whole game is designed in isometric style! Check out examples

and when you talk of its UI then all the elements are designed on FLAT UI base with Minimal White Colors!
