Flat web design first became popular around two years ago, but it has not lost its power this year as more and more metro style websites that see daylight for the first time.

Flat web design is quite simple. It is a method of design without the 3D attributes, which means no bevels, gradients and shadows. However, it does not mean that flat designs do not have any effect at all. It only means that it does not use the effects that are utilized to create dimension and depth. Flat designs focus more on typography, simple UI elements and solid colors.

Flat web design caused plenty of debates and really deserves a much longer article. However, although this post is not as deep, it certainly can help you understand the concept. Below, we will show you a number of flat web design examples that you can use as inspiration. Let us know what you think about them through the comment section below.
