Flat Design: Great Examples of Websites Following the Trend

Although the “flat design” concept is not new, being successfully used many years ago within design projects, it looks like this year it made a comeback. And what a comeback! Facebook and Google already followed the trend and improved their product designs with flat elements. Microsoft increased the trend popularity by its Windows 8 releases and many other websites are successfully implementing elements which define a flat design.

There are a couple of principles which can make a design to be called flat: simple UI elements without any shadows or gradients, color and typography focus, accent on content hierarchy. But I don`t see reasons to explain them. Better, take a look at these awesome examples of websites which are successfully showcasing the flat web design principles.

A web developer with a crush on SEO. Having my skin in the game of website development and digital marketing for more than 10 years already, you might consider me an expert. At least this is what people call me. Honestly, I HATE that term. I prefer to describe myself as a person who takes action and risks. I test every hypothesis, document every step of the process, and implement what works.
