The flat trend in web design has recently gained a lot of popularity and we started noticing lots of website and interface designs springing up with this design style. We’ve seen the use of solid colors increase through the adoption of the flat design trend, but these hues are becoming increasingly vibrant following the release of iOS7 and the colorful iPhone 5C. Dazzling RGB colors are becoming more popular in the latest website designs, with saturation levels at an all-time high.
Flat design is a label the community has adopted for designs leaving behind drop shadows, subtle textures, and gradients in favor of solid colors, clean layouts and sharp typography, somewhat similar to the design of Windows 8 and the Metro UI.
