40+ Beautiful Flat Web Designs for Your Inspiration

Posted in Inspiration, Web Interfaces1 year ago • Written by 46 Comments

For the last couple of months, flat web design has been really a huge topic on the Web. Up to now, it is steadily dominating the Web. From UI, to the latest portfolio update, icons and even the top web design blogs are now using flat web design, not to mention Microsoft, Android and just recently Apple is going flat too!

So why are so many designers using this style?

Flat design makes things free from distractions, eliminating heavy background images, swirls, grunge that makes everything cluttered. It’s very easy to navigate, since there are no more gradients, drop shadows, glows and bevels. It puts more focus on the text, making everything readable from big screens down to mobile.

Oh, and besides if you want something more than inspiration we have nice flat countdown timer video tutorial created specially for you!

Okay, enough talking. Time to check our collection of flat web design for your inspiration!

    I often think that “flat” design could have just as easily been coined “clean” design.

    Some really nice examples here.

    Flat design focuses solely on the content and minimalism is a big part of this design idea. It should be used when it’s appropriate for the client or the website.

    Very nice collection. The ‘flat design’ trend had a really nice feel to it on responsive websites although I would have to say not on an operating system– eg. iOS7. This is a very good collection and I really appreciated the grouping of sites. I’d love to see more categories of ‘flat design’ such as Restaurant sites and Medical, etc.

    Thanks again.

    While I do like Minimalism/Flat Design, I feel like it’s starting to get over rated now. But I at least give a thumbs up to those that do incorporate flats with other elements, such as almost flat or flat + depth. Great collection nonetheless.

    Flat web design works for me. And any website homepage which can incorporate the word FREE with a call-to-action button is a winner, in my opinion. ‘Dunked’ does this well.
