Since superheroes are that famous and they have a huge impact to each and every one of us, there had been many artists who had shown their own artworks featuring our favorite characters. It is entertaining as well as impressive to see what they can do to these superheroes just like what we have previously showcased from action figures to a twist on the look of different heroes.

Today, we will show you another list of creative superhero designs, this time it is flat. We are sure you have heard of flat design. It is a trend that gets rid of beveled edges, gradients, shadows, and reflections and focuses mainly on a simple design. This is what Jeffrey Rau applied to his illustrations of superheroes. He is a comic book fan and graphic artist from Lincoln, Nebraska. Take a look at how he illustrated different superhero characters with a minimal and flat design.
