Flat Design is a new trend labeled by the community as an interface striking similar to Windows 8 and Microsoft’s Metro UI because it leaves behind drop shadows, subtle textures and gradients in favour of solid colours, clean layouts and sharp typography.
Microsoft led the charge to introduce it to the masses and many others have followed suit: LayerVault, The Next Web, and more. Flat design is beautiful and refreshing. It’s also generally faster to design and easier to make responsive. The Design Inspiration has published an article showcases 25 Best Examples of Flat UI Design Websites.
