Flat design is getting quite popular. Top companies such as Microsoft and Apple are using it with their websites. So what is the main hint of the design pattern- simplicity and intuitive approach. There are no complicated design techniques used within this approach. So the main specialties of the design are:

  • The approach is very user-friendly and easy in use.
  • The classical sophisticated design approaches are replaced with visual hierarchy and use of colors.
  • There's only 2D and everything that used to be 3D is reorganized.
  • There are plenty of colors used for the design pattern- either bright color mixture of up to 8 colors or neutral colors with a wide range of color shades.
  • Typography serves as a tool for differentiating buttons, forms and similar details.
  • Text is limited to the minimal amount.
