This infographic explains the 7 benefits of flat design and why having a website that uses flat design looks so good. Flat design is the perfect example of the popular saying “less is more.” Flat design is a basic and minimalistic design that de-clutters a website and draws the viewer’s attention directly to the main content instead of confusing graphs and distracting illustrations. Flat design leaves the web page looking clean and simple therefore making it easier for viewers to navigate around with little effort required. Each element of flat design has a 2D appearance therefore there is no use for shadow effects therefore making the icons look a lot less cluttered and cleaner.
