Examples Of Flat Web & App UI Designs

Early 2013 has seen a rise in some pretty interesting discussions on the use of ‘flat web design’. Flat design seems to be causing a slight stir amongst the design community right now, arguments for and against the flat design trend are often lively and heated.

Flat Design is a new trend labeled by the community as an interface striking similar to Microsoft’s Metro UI because it leaves drop shadows, embossing, subtle textures and gradients behind, while favoring clean layouts, sharp typography and solid colors. The new Google design and Microsoft’s come-up with Windows 8 is actually based on an older trend called Flat Design, which was not extremely popular back then, but was very easy to design, therefore people used it.

The best way explain what the term flat design means is to provide you with some examples. In this article we would like to show what in our opinion are great examples of flat web and app UI designs.
