Flat UI

Bootstrap, Twitter’s homebrewed, open-source user interface framework, brings a lot of goodies to the table for busy web developers. But some folks would prefer the kit sans goodies — especially when the goodies include dated-looking gradients and drop shadows.

Today, we got wind of Flat U.I., a gorgeous, Bootstrap-based set of web templates in a very modern style. It features a fresh color palette, a gorgeous sans-serif web font, and a sweet 2D aesthetic that’s classic and fun at the same time.

Check ‘er out:

Flat UI comes from Designmodo, a developer-focused design shop that sells U.I. “packs” to help enterprising hackers outsource the pixels so they can better focus on code and creativity. Typically, these packs are composed of .PSD Photoshop files; this is Designmodo’s first HTML kit. .PSD files for the pack are also available.

The HTML version of Flat UI is based on Twitter Bootstrap and is Retina-ready. It includes custom form components, special CSS3 effects and an object-oriented CSS approach, a customizable color scheme, and the aforementioned web font as well as web font icons.
