The term flat design (from the English flat flat design and design ) has its origin in interface design . There is a design style that is based on simplicity and functionality. Flat design dispensed with a realistic representation of textures, embellishments, drop shadows, and three-dimensional elements and follows the approach of “less is more”. The focus is on the absolute reduction in design to the essentials. Flat design has proven to be counter-current to Skeuomorphismus developed in which specific paper textures or patterns are used as metaphors that enable life-like interface design. The advantage of the flat design is that page layouts can be designed for users that are simple and easy to read. Thus, a good usability of the interface are guaranteed to websites. Closely associated with the flat design is the launch of Windows 8 in 2013, since the entire interface is implemented in this style.
