How to Use UI Kits – Plus Free UI Kits to Choose From!

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.

OK, enough for introduction. I know you’re all fired up and want to know how to use UI kits. So let’s rock!

Choosing a UI Kit to Use

There are a lot of UI kit resources on the Web that you can use, depending on what you need. But for this tutorial, we will be using Flat UI PSD format by since it has a lot of user interface elements that we can choose from.

Feel free to check these out too!

Flat UI Pro, a professional design framework

1.  Flat AP UI Kit

From: Andrew Preble

2. Featherweight UI – A free, vector based and retina ready UI kit

From: Sara Hunt

3. Flat Design UI Kit Vol. 1

From: Bloom Web Design

4. FREE flat UI kit.


5. UI Kit

From: Abhimanyu Rana

Opening the UI Kit PSD File

Unzip the file first to view the contents of the folder. You can see four folders and 2 .txt files inside. Open the UI folder and then view the flat-ui-free.psd file in Adobe Photoshop.



By default, there are three folders on the Flat UI PSD file:

  • Basic Elements – consists of a series of individual UI element folders.
  • Samples – consists of the actual application design of the UI elements.
  • Background – the white background of the UI elements.


Using the UI Kit Elements

Now that the Flat UI PSD file is opened, we can now go on and use the UI elements. Click Auto Select on the Option Bar (on the top left section of Photoshop near the menu. Make sure Group is selected instead of layer) and then open the Basic Elements folder.



Next, select the UI elements that you want to use. For this example, we will select the menu, share status buttons, radio buttons and checkboxes. Click on the selected UI elements and then move them to a new Photoshop document file.


Resizing UI Kit Elements

To resize UI elements, click on the Direct Selection Tool on the toolbar on the left section of the Photoshop.


And then select the path on the right side of the UI element you want to resize. For this example, we will resize the menu element, press shift and drag the path to the right to resize.


Changing the UI Element Color Scheme

To change the color scheme, you need to select the specific element you want change then click on the shape and select your preferred color on the color picker. For this example, we will change the background color of the menu. Go to the Menu folder and look for the shape layer that has the same background color of the menu. Change the background color of the menu to hexadecimal color: #00acc0.


Using Vectors and Glyphs

Vectors and glyphs add a touch of  creativity to web design elements. Let’s use the existing vectors and glyphs of the Flat UI kit. Create a new Photoshop document file. Next, create a box using Rounded Rectangle Tool with the dimension of 372px by 372px.  Now drag the retina vector icon and static green button on the box you created. Then drag the round check icon glyph to the left of the static green button. You just use the vectors and glyphs of UI elements.


Exporting UI Elements for Web

Now that we already know how to resize and change the color scheme of UI elements, let’s export them for web use. Simply drag your preferred UI element in the new Photoshop document file with a transparent background. Make sure you will only select the layers of that UI element, not the whole folders themselves. For this example, let’s use the paginator. Drag the UI element in the new Photoshop document and go to Image then choose Trim.


The Trim window will then appear. Next, select the Transparent Pixels radio button and make sure that all of the checkboxes are selected on Trim Away section (Top, Bottom, Left, Right) and then click OK.


Then Go to File > Save for Web & Devices. In the Save for Web & Devices Window, select the type of preset you want to use. For this example, PNG-24 is used since high quality image with no transparent background is preferred. Click Save to place it on your preferred location.


Congratulations! You just learned how to use, resize, change color scheme, apply vectors and glyphs and export UI kit elements for web used.


UI kits are very helpful to both web designers and web developers. If you are a freelancer, using UI Kits will save you a lot of time since you don’t need spend more time thinking for the design. It can please your clients too because you can deliver the project faster. You can explore more UI kits here. The web is composed of hundreds of UI Kits, both in free and premium versions. You just need to choose the UI kit that suits your needs. You might also want to try to apply it on your actual web or mobile design and then later on code it using HTML and CSS.

From Fabric to Flat Screen: How Color Combination Theories in Fashion Can Help a Web Designer

One cannot deny how color combination theories in fashion can help a web designer. You see, clothing and web designing have a lot in common. Both require a great deal of effort in trying to balance purpose and beauty. The two fields also require a great amount of effort in making quality designs become tangible products. In clothing, the design should be transformed – using scissors, thread, fabric and needles – into a tangible, comfortable, wearable and fashionable outfit.

Meanwhile, in web design, the designer should be able to create – using images, text boxes, codes and typefaces – a browsable, comfortable and usable website. These two, being common in some ways, also possess the similar techniques in creating elements. Fashion designers should have a very good sense of color combination. They make the most out of every hue to make their clients feel good about themselves. In fact, designers take loads of time to decide which colors they are going to use for such creations. They employ careful selection and consideration of visual and analytic aspects to make their work more appealing to the eye. For, in the end, fashion, clothes and dresses are still visual.

It is in the same principle that a web designer must select his color scheme. Like fashion, web design is mainly visual. The eye is the main processing unit of the body which perceives what is flashed on the screen of the computer or mobile device. A good web designer knows which colors combine and which do not. The designer must remember that these combinations suit different occasions and circumstances.


Experiment with color schemes at color-scheme-01

What if you haven’t studied web design or multimedia arts? What if you are just an ordinary blogger who has an extraordinary dream of getting a lot of readers? What will you do? Fear not. The secret is simple: stand up, go to your dressing room and  look at your closet. Try to look at your clothes. Which fabric fits the color of another? Which combination fits an occasion? Which of these gazillion fabrics compliment each another? Choose and answer these questions. Then, transform those fabric colors into flat screen ones

. color-combination-web002jpg

But, in case you are too preoccupied, (or in semantic terms, too lazy) to open your dresser, here are some few friendly reminders:

1. Occasionalize

Here is an example: unless it’s Christmas, or your company color dictates so, do not mix green and red. Don’t make your website look like a Christmas present. Red and green mix well only when it’s Christmas time (or when the company or client dictates so). People might think of your blog as a Santa’s Elves Labor Union website. Your readers might appeal that they got the wrong present last year. To avoid this, apply color theories. Learn the techniques on using colors to fit the theme of your website. Having a theme gives you identity. It’s something that all products, either on the Web or in the real world would want to attain. If a person recognizes you because of the color of your site, then you have nothing to worry because your website can be popular before you know it.


The thing is, you should learn how to occasionalize. Fit a color for the occasion or the nature of the website or blog. Example, if you manage a bank website, use blue colors as they suggest trustworthiness. If you are running a spa, use brown or/and green. If you are into a restaurant business, better use orange, yellow, and red. If you are a car dealer, use black. Fit every color, hue and shade for every occasion. But if you are designing for a Christmas-themed website, better retain the red and green colors because there’s no other more appropriate colors for Christmas than those. Web designing is like dressing up. If it ain’t fit the occasion, might as well go naked.

2. Be a Fame-whore!

Be a fame-seeking-madman, in a good sense. Get attention. Crave for it. Be crazy about it. Use your colors to attractively get subscribers. Like in clothing, neon colors of red, orange, yellow, purple and green attract attention. It suggests urgency. It is very useful to convey important messages. In the context of web designs, you could use such colors in your buttons which require attention. Hook your prospect readers by attracting their eyes first. Provide a good bait.


Getting their attention is one way of making them read your blog. The formula is simple: get them to read a part of your blog. If they like that part, they might as well read every entry. So that’s why you should able to get their attention! Use bright colors for your subscribe buttons, read-me pages, or any page or button that will require the attention of your would-be readers. Remember: Bright is right! Just be careful with this and don’t make your page look like a book with Stabilo highlighters all over. Too many neon colors are blinding, irritating and uninteresting to read.

3. Background-foreground agreement

If in clothing, you need to consider your skin color in selecting hues for your shirt, we have the seemingly same rule here. When designing web pages, consider the text-background relationship. Now, most beginners have a hard time on this. That is the reason why we see a lot of photos superimposed with texts and the text becomes unreadable. The background-foreground agreement rule generally says that you should make the foreground text readable. The background is just a designing tool. It just decorates the main thing.


Photo from Pamela Geller’s Book Stop the Islamization of America 

You should always remember the general principle: light colored background to dark colored text and vice versa. But if you are using pictures as background and the color is varying, it is most advisable to use solid-colored shapes as background superimposed to images.

Web designing and fashion have the same roots. They both come from the early concepts of visual design. It is very obvious that they should possess the same philosophies- and color combination is one of them. The ability to produce a design which has complementing colors is something a designer should possess. He should be aware that the colors that he will use will affect, either visually or psychologically, the quality of his work. Knowing, understanding and applying the rules of fashion in web design is very beneficial. Yes, learning the theories and concepts that make colors coordinate with each other is a very tall order; and yes, it’s a big struggle but it’s a battle that you should win. All of these hard-fought troubles in learning new things will make you a better designer. You’ll produce better designs, and in turn, more money. So, start learning today!

Though the learning process may be,you should out-battle this struggle. You should be able to pick up the important lessons of design and put them in your arsenal. And these will matter to you in the end.

How to Ace Your Freelancing Career

Has it ever occur to you how to ace your freelancing career? Freelance web designing is not an ordinary job. If you dip in the puddle of the freelance industry, you’ll discover that these people are a lot more creative and productive than those who work at desks and offices. Surely, they don’t earn the way people at desk jobs do but freelancers have the absolute and ultimate liberty on how well they utilize their time, and, in most cases, where they utilize it.

As a freelancer, you can work anywhere, anytime. You can design your website in a desk, an office, a coffee shop, in the bathroom – you name it. Freelancers have the greatest gift of all: Freedom. However, this freedom isn’t really that ‘free’. As a freelance web designer, you need to work with people, deadlines and the greatest enemy of all time, procrastination.

So, what will you do to become a smart freelancer? Let me share with you these simple tips:

Have a Routine

In basketball, the best free-throw shooters follow a routine. It’s not a foolproof solution to bad free-throw shooting but it helps. It allows you, the player, to focus and condition your mind into thinking that you are shooting a free-throw and nothing else.


Photo by Kate Parker

In freelancing, this is also applicable. Having a daily routine for your tasks is advantageous. It allows you to condition your mind into working. Plus, you are able to manage your time properly. Set goals and arrange them according to urgency and importance. Balance all the things that need to be done and judge what needs to be done first.


Remember when I said that you need to arrange every task according to importance? You need to know what projects should be done first and what are the more important ones and should be given more time. Don’t focus on one project only; try to work on the things you want to get accomplished first.

Have you heard of the Pareto Principle? Maybe you could use this great management tool to your advantage.

The basic premise in this principle is to have an 80-20 rule. According to the rule, the 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. Meaning, 80% of your project delays, come from the 20% of doing projects you can’t finish.

So next time you take on a project, think how difficult it is to finish and how long will it take for you to have it done. Then compute how much will you earn over the effort. The result will determine the priority of your project.

  • If the project is less difficult, put it first. That way, before you spend a big chunk of your time on a difficult and time-consuming project, you’re done with the easy ones.
  • Do the projects that have the earliest deadlines.
  • Focus on the projects that interest you the most.

Choose Between Day or Night

Are you a day or night person? This is a serious and important question to answer. Some people find mornings exciting and invigorating to work. Some find evenings mind-conditioning and could write a thousand lines of code. Either way, you need to find where you belong. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage as a freelancer. Of course, it is a disadvantage because you’ll be dealing with distractions at any point in the day, so you have to resist. But it is more of an advantage because most jobs don’t offer you this flexibility – to work whenever you want.


Photo by Periwinckle

So choose. By saving time, you take those idle moments when you are not productive as rest hours, giving you time to refresh and recharge.

Give Each Project a Time Limit

Never put your time to waste. Prepare a schedule for your projects. Give each project a time limit, enough for you to actually finish what you’re supposed to do. With that, you will know how much you will be able to do and handle each project with sensitivity and full attention. If you fail to meet the time limit and you feel that extending it will hamper the succeeding items in your schedule, then continue it after everything is done. That way, you will not end up wasting time and finishing nothing.

Keep Yourself from Distractions

When you work, as much as possible, keep away from distractions: that itching sensation of checking who just sent you a message on Facebook, browsing through the Twitter Feed, or even opening your favorite MMORPG. These things keep you away from what you are supposed to do. Identify what these distractions are and avoid them by all means. This may be difficult at first, but then again, everything is, isn’t’ it?


Have you felt absolutely flat out? Like, when your imagination cannot produce anything? Or when you cannot work? Well, that’s a very difficult situation. You’re in a ‘block’. So what do you need to do? The secret is simple: outline.

Outlining is an advantageous means of preserving your creativity for more projects. It’s very simple. First, you need to bring your writing materials wherever you go. Bring a pencil or a piece of paper. Next, in your idle time, walk around, have coffee, watch a movie. Do anything. If anything pops up, which I’m sure there will, write it down (or draw it). That way, you’re investing in your own ‘idea bank’ and obtain ideas from it when you need them the most.


Photo byMarcio Eugenio

Make a Portfolio

As freelancers, you have no character references to offer or any cool and prestigious corporate names to provide. Clients are not be sure how good you are because of this. That is why you need to create a great portfolio. Put your projects, I mean, your best projects in it. This way, when future clients would request a list of what you’ve already done, you can give them your URL and let them see how good you really are.


Photo by

Take a Break

Of course, taking a break is important. As websites need to clear caches, or computers need to refresh, you also need to rest. Taking rests before projects allow you to become more passionate and productive! It also keeps you from being sick and tired of what you do. So sit back and refresh – I mean, relax.


Photo by Steve Beckett


Freelancing sure is difficult and it poses a lot of challenges, but it’s totally worth it. Once you’ve become used to the routine and kept yourself away from distractions, you’ll find yourself enjoying and earning as much as (or even more) than those who have regular jobs! So suit up and become a smarter freelancer.

10 Free Blank WordPress Themes

This is a review of the top blank WordPress theme choices.

What is a Blank WordPress Theme?

Blank WordPress themes are boilerplates that serve as a starting point for developing your own custom theme, which is why they’re also called "starter themes" and (less commonly) "naked themes".

Blank WordPress themes come with basic WordPress PHP, CSS, and HTML code and theme files already filled out for you.

Unlike theme frameworks, most of the files in a blank WordPress theme are meant to be modified based on your needs.

Why Use Blank WordPress Themes?

Blank WordPress themes speed up your workflow by reducing the amount of code you need to write. Having a skeletal foundation means you don’t have to do the same initiation process over and over every time you need to start creating a new theme.

In addition, using a blank WordPress theme lowers the chances of you forgetting critical files or code required for a theme to function properly.

Some blank WordPress themes will also have useful integrated features like responsive layouts and sample data to help you test your theme.

Below is an overview of the 10 best free blank/starter WordPress themes I could find.

1. Roots

Roots is an excellent open source WordPress starter theme. It’s built with HTML5 Boilerplate and Bootstrap (if you don’t need it, you can replace or remove it). It also has Grunt files for quickly compiling LESS code and combining your CSS and JS files.

A nifty feature of Roots is its Theme Wrapper, which helps you avoid having to write the same code in multiple files.

Check out themes built using Roots at the Roots Gallery. Get started with Roots by heading over to the project’s official docs.

2. Underscores


Underscores, or _s, is a free blank WordPress theme developed by Automattic, the creators of WordPress.

It has five layout templates. Unfortunately, Underscores doesn’t have a pre-built responsive layout, so you’ll have to create one.

The tutorial series by ThemeShaper (a major WordPress theme development company) will help you learn how to create WP themes using Underscores.

3. Bones


Bones is a free blank theme built on top of HTML5 Boilerplate. It’s responsive, and developed under the Mobile First philosophy.

WPtuts+ has an excellent Bones tutorial to help you get started with this awesome starter theme.

You have the option to use the Sass version, or just plain CSS version if you want.
