20 Of The Best Flat Design Templates

Site design is crucial because it can either appeal to the public, or fail to draw and secure their attention. So, which approach is more likely to get great results? Over the last months, flat design has been gaining more and more ground. It wasn’t just the leading trend of 2013, but continues to rule the sympathies of a huge number of designers who intend to keep making websites in this style.

Why does the audience react so well to flat design? The answer lies in its utter simplicity. From the point of view of your average daily visitors, the faster that they understand what the website is all about – and what they have to do, the better. A skeuomorphic design, though opulent and full of impact, sacrifices simplicity for the sake of 3D effects.

Flat design avoids bevels, gradients, textures, embossing, or drop shadows, and embraces minimalism. Light animation techniques and illustrations/photos, together with a fine choice of typography, are more than enough to get the right message across. And to wrap it up, icons and buttons are emphasized so that users don’t feel confused about taking a course of action.

Making certain that your website looks great and functions perfectly is not as difficult as most people like to believe. Instead of taking ages to create something from scratch, graphic designers could simply turn to a really good layout and go from there. In which case, the best source for high quality themes would be TemplateMonster.

To say that this library deserves your attention would be an understatement. Its selection team is very picky about the templates that are to be accepted, its vaults are home to 20K glorious templates that are fit for almost any kind of website, and 500 new additions augment that crushing number on a monthly basis.
