Flat web design is the most talked about and biggest trend in web design right now. It’s all about Flat Web Design and Flat UI. As the name indicates. Flat web design is a minimalistic design approach that emphasizes usability, clean layouts, sharp topography and bright colors. It leaves behind extra elements such as drop shadow, textures, bevels and gradients to simplify interface and avoid 3D look in interface. I was a huge fan of flat web design. Designs with combination of bright colors, special fonts and great images to highlight the beauty of simple gestures to place a higher focus on the content. Even when it was not called flat design. In addition to minimalistic and its simplicity, flat ui is great for mobile and responsive design.

Microsoft was the first to apply flat web design and flat ui to its entire interface. After that Apple started to apply this to its iOS 7 interface on iPhone and iPad devices. Along with Microsoft and Apple, Google also adopted the flat design to its interface such as Chrome browser, Google plus, Gmail etc. Actually Google replaced everything with flat design in their entire products.
