Less is more
This quote is becoming more sensible, especially for designers who have adapted the minimalist design approach. Over the years, minimalism, or the act of putting away irrelevant things to make space for the relevant ones, has become a regular part of every modern design principle. As web designers, we too, practice the same maxim. In fact, we even want to make this philosophy for living our lives. We strive to achieve such state that we even want our office setups or work space to reflect what we believe in.
For one, having a minimalist design in your office setup has its advantages:
- It makes us focus more on ‘work’ than goofing around
- It lessens the distraction and makes you think that you have fewer tasks to accomplish
- It is beautiful to the eyes
- You can actually make a small room bigger

UI kits can be seen anywhere on the Web. But what is this UI kit thing? Do you know how to use UI kits? You can see a lot of resources with beautiful interface elements such as buttons, sliders, breadcrumbs, media players, forms and the likes. Perhaps it crossed your mind how these elements came to be.
Let me give you first a brief introduction about UI kits. A UI kit stands for “User Interface Kit”, which are PSD files that are composed of user interface elements. These come in a variety of colors, patterns and asl files that are being integrated on web and mobile designs. Though sometimes there are UI elements that are included on the package that you don’t think you will be using. That being said, UI kits will vary according to your web design needs. Usually the premium versions of UI kits come with a lot of user interface elements than the free ones.
Using UI kits is all about improving and speeding up the workflow without giving a lot of time thinking what to design. This allows you to focus more on the functionality and usability of the website you are working on.Read More
