Web Design Inspiration – 22x Flat Web Design

I’ve decided to post more web design inspirations on a regular base. I collected modern websites with a flat design for this post. This web design trend is quite popular since 2012 and you will find it nearly everywhere. 90% of the newest WordPress themes, Tumblr themes or HTML5 templates use this design.

I created some categories for this article to give you a better clue:


10x Parallax and One-Page websites

These types of websites show two more widely spread trends of 2013. The one-page design uses only a single page to present the whole content. The pages are particularly well suited for campaigns, events or small companies. Parallax scrolling is a beautiful effect, if you do not use it too much.
