Flat Design – What Is It All About?

Are you familiar with the term “flat design»?

It is one of the hottest discussion topics among web designers today. What’s special about flat design? Basically, flat design does not use any extra effects or decorations. All elements or boxes, image frames, navigation buttons and etc, are clear-cut and lack shadows, gradients or edges.

Flat design method was quite popular in the past, and now it has returned back. It would not be a joke, if we state that flat design is just that – flat (thanks, Cap!).

But do not underestimate flat design: it is not completely without effects, of course. Truly speaking, it just lacks extra effects to create “artificial” depth and dimension.

So, what is peculiar to flat design? First of all, it focuses on vivid colors. Color is a key component to making your website elements stand out, and stay in harmony at the same time.

Good content is essential, of course! Flat design does not mean “plain” design, in no way! That’s why typography is very important. The headings, navigation, banners should communicate a message to your visitors – make sure they won’t get lost in the woods of identical texts!

The interface should be simple and user-friendly: all the elements should be of clear use, otherwise they won’t be effective.
The popularity of flat design will grow together with the demand for clean UI and mobile friendly websites. You can go with the trend and create a website, based on flat design! It’s up to you!
