Propelled by Windows 8 and iOS 7, flat design has been one of the most popular design trends to define 2013. Emphasizing functionality over style, flat design focuses on typography and colors instead of visual effects like 3D elements and drop shadows.
It is also one of the most polarizing of styles to bombard iOS users, particularly those who were used to (and still love) the skeumorphism of earlier iOS versions. Thoughtful selections of typography, single-colored backgrounds, and a very-much muted color palette are some elements that contribute to a well-executed flat design.
