Flat web design could be considered many things – a new trend, style, fad, movement, way of thinking, etc. There is no single and complete definition yet, what we can do is try to acknowledge the postulates, philosophy, and history that stands behind the term.
Here at 1stwebdesigner we are very passionate about flat web design. Not because everyone is talking about it so we simply can’t ignore it – no, we are actually proponents of how flat is reshaping the way we think, talk, and do web design.

We believe that aesthetics is only the surface – flat is a whole new approach to building websites. We believe that flat web design is about showing less on the screen, but doing more with it. Form follows function. It is about boiling the aesthetics down to its essentials and focusing on the message. Flat seeks to support the content from behind by removing background distractions and amplifying the voice of the content. Flat is all about content and making the most of the medium.
However, at the same time, we are a bit concerned and, truth be told, responsible that there aren’t enough resources for young designers to master flat design, understand what is it about, and build better websites. Of course, one might argue that there is plenty of articles, inspiration, and tutorials out there. But we tend to disagree. How many of these inspiration showcases talk about the influences behind flat web design and analyze the origins of it? How many of these tutorials talk about the concept and goal behind a website and why designers build what they build? How many of them can show you the whole process behind building a contemporary flat responsive website starting with a blank sheet of paper and ending up with a usable result? We think not so many.
That is why we decided to make our own video course where beginner web designers and developers could learn what it takes to build a website nowadays. But enough of words – switch the lights off and enjoy:
