2014 brought a different style in designing a website, everybody used to love 3D buttons, graphics and animations in the previous years. Today is a trend of FLAT web design, that has no gradients, drop shadows or 3D effects. It wasn’t easy to accept Flat Designs at the initial stages but clean designs look amazingly beautiful and user friendly so let’s first see what is flat web design?

Keep design approach minimal, user friendly and clean defines a good Flat Design. It uses clean design, sharp edges, bright colors and two dimensional illustrations. Windows 8 was first to introduce this concept and now almost every design who follow trends, keeps the design clean and flat.
