Creative UI Kits For Easy Website Design

Every designer that works on a daily basis doing design mockups will need to have certain elements very handy. Some people are making a collection of such UI elements during years of hard working by gathering like their own treasure all the graphic elements that help them get a nice design in minutes. Why are these UI Kits so important? Because no matter how good you are you need to focus on the most important things when doing a design and create unique stuff.

But, for this you need time and is not needed to reinvent the wheel each time you open Photoshop or Illustrator. So if you need to use some buttons or controls in your design why to waste a day creating them rather then adapting an existing prepared kit that will do the work? We try to help you by gathering a nice collection of creative UI Kits that maybe will make your designer life much easier.

    Silly question, I am just learning Maya and closed the window with all the tools (scale, move, etc) how to I make it come back? I’ve been clicking everything and can’t figure it out. Is there a shortcut?

  2. xiM Clutch says:

    I am going to teach myself how to edit my wedding pictures with a photoshop download trial, but there are three options, Photoshop CS5, Photoshop Lightroom 3, and Photoshop Elements 9. Suggestions? And good websites with trials for cool effects would be nice :)

  3. _marky_mark_ says:

    I am a UI designer, i am able to do the usability and the details, but my clients always complain about the color combo and aesthetics. how to improve that please help me ?

  4. Mr SoLo DoLo says:

    Denim jackets and jeans have their buttons kinda screwed in rather than just sewed on and I was wondering if I took this denim jacket I have to a tailor, could he replace the buttons? They’re silver and I wanna replace it with copper/bronze so if I provide new buttons to screw in to the jacket could a tailor replace them? Like, would he be able to do it? Or would I have to buy some sort of tool to do it myself.

  5. friendly 4 says:

    I have user-generated content that I’m inserting via document.write. How can I defined the prompts with a CSS class so the words are in different colors so you can see which words the user added?

  6. PolishPokeyPimp says:

    writing a short essay on an art work called magpies and hare by ts’ui po. im having a hard time actually writing about content and form. is content like the meaning? what is the meaning of this painting?

  7. kass9191 says:

    I first programmed in Visual basic and there I can create a button without typing any code.
    While others require you to type some codes.

  8. kass9191 says:

    I’m just a bit scared, because my mum said that her web cam system did very unusual and creepy things, like being on, when no one turned it on, or a camera icon popping up on the monitor, and when she went to click on the icon, and the cursor hovered over it the icon vanished.
    I don’t want people spying on me when I’m getting dressed.

  9. PillowMan1234 says:

    I don’t have much knowledge in programming, for the sake of answering my question, just assume I don’t know anything at all about it. Can someone with experience please list some topics I should do some research on? Like HTML, CSS, Photoshop, softwares to use, etc.

    A brief explanation of what each thing is would be nice too.

  10. Mistry says:

    How do I do it?

  13. diggn4richez says:

    Garbage UI
    Barely any RPG elements.
    Boring, bland quests. “fetch me this, kill that” *yawn*
    Linear dungeons.
    Boring, cliched riddle POS story, with same boring fetch and kill quests.

  14. Jerosh Nagulachandran says:

    What is a World of Warcraft Interface and what is it used for?

  15. Noe R says:

    like, you unknowingly are being watched by some creepy person online. hasnt happened to me. just curious.

  16. Erfan says:

    Besides the light that lets you know your web cam is on, I was wondering if there is a way of knowing through looking in your computer if someone is watching you. I’ve heard some sites can remotely watch you after you’ve clicked out of them. How do I know if I am and how do I prevent it, other than covering the cam on my computer.

  17. Xbox Gamer says:

    I would like to make a table in which users are able to input information based on the fields provided.
    I want it to look something like this:
    http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/6560/extraca.png

    With an “add new” field as well.

    How can i do this?

  18. stealspartansbcglobalnet says:

    With the use of jQuery, javascript or ajax, where can I see how to create a user interface to change the content and CSS style on a web page, Then have that code appear in a text field area for “copy and paste”?
    Thank you!

  19. nathan says:

    I just finished a year of web design classes in css and html. I’m not sure whether to invest my next semester in learning flash or javascript (I need to pick one, not both). I’ve heard a lot of complaints about flash not being web friendly, but I’ve also heard javascript is very limited on animation. What are the pros cons of each?

  20. Shay H says:

    I really like photoshop, we have it at school and I use it alot. My dad said I could get it, but it’s really expensive so he wanted me to find out if Photoshop elements was good. What does it let you do?

  21. airdogspace2 says:

    I am new to programming I am taking “Introductioin to C++ programming” course ,,,, I am just cofused about what are SDK (Software Develpement Kit) and IDE (Integrated Developement Environment) all I know is that Visual Studio is an example of SDK where you can edit, run, compile, debug the C++ program

    Can you please clearify what both mean??

  22. Sophia C says:

    The phone I’m planning to buy has Symbian S60 ver5 (Nokia 5800), and there are some S60 ver3 appplications I want to be able to use, especially DivX Mobile.

  23. Gundown64 says:

    I’m a Mac user but I was wanting to find a copy of Windows 8 just to install as a virtual machine in Parallels Desktop 8 for running Windows software and also because I love the new minimalist UI (although they really need to get rid of all the classic Windows UI elements because they’re still lurking around in the Desktop mode).

    I already have the Consumer Preview installed in a virtual machine in PD8, as an alternative wouldn’t I be able to just buy the Windows 8 upgrade edition and just install it in that virtual machine?

    Also to note I don’t have any install DVDs with previous Windows versions that I could possibly upgrade from.

  24. Squall Leonhart says:

    I really do think that this is a primo idea, including never-before-seen user interface, concepts, and themes. Really.
    I can do concept art, basic programs (non-graphic, though), UI design, and basic plot and campaign summaries; I don’t need any control over the game’s production. If they take a few elements from my idea, take it in a whole new direction, and just mention me in the credits, than I’m happy.

  25. lcollier93sbcglobalnet says:

    I recently wanted to start using google voice to call my friend. So if I use google voice from my G2 to call her phone what number will show up on her bill when it shows every outgoing and incoming call? Will it be my personal number or will it be my google number I am calling from?
    Were both using T-Mobile by the way.

    I’d really like to become a video game developer, but I’m not sure what type of degree I should get and where I should start working. I’m deciding between tech school (like ITT Tech) or actual college, or most likely even both since that would seem like the smarter choice. Is tech school even worth it?

    I know how to make a button change colors and swap pictures when you hover but I never understood how its done when both buttons are in one picture. Like the normal button is on top and below is the button it changes too. Sorry if it doesnt make sense. Also how some websites have 1 picture with all the UI elements, like icons and stuff, how does that work?

  41. x_blind_x_gamer_x says:

    When in the 4-panel view, 3 of the windows just ”copy” each other; if I for example I zoom in in one of the view panels, it also happens in the other 2.

  45. stephen m says:

    As far as I can tell, you can specify the North, South, East, and West of the image along with a possible rotation. But what I really want is to specify the four corners of an image that’s taken from an angle, not straight down, so that it projects correctly. I’m pretty sure you can’t do this through the UI, but is it possible with KML?

  58. Peter says:
