Last month Usabilia asked 100 web professionals for their opinion on the future of flat web design, and a huge 68% said that it is here to stay and not just another passing design trend. So despite our discussion in 2012 about the then new flat design aesthetic, it appears that the future of web design is more than certainly going to be flat.
If you haven’t embraced flat yet, you had better do it now.
In January last year we showcased some of the early flat-style converts, and to be honest there wasn’t that many good examples to choose from, we did manage to find 20 though. Fast forward 18 months and every single new web site seems to be flat, or at the very least adopted some flat elements. Due to the sheer volume of these flat sites, compiling this gallery post was a bit of a nightmare. After a lot of filtering, we have managed to choose 50 sites, from 2014, that we feel have truly captured the flat design trend.
