The best free UI kits, February 2015.
Designers love UI Kits. They’re a great way to explore ideas, and they’re a great palette cleanser after a difficult project. Another reason to love them is that they give us incredible insights into the minds of other designers, without a client complicating things. As such they’re a great way to spot trends as they develop. Today we’ve gathered together some of the very best UI Kits from the last month, together with some slightly older kits that plug a few gaps. All of these UI kits are free to download and you’ll find resources for Photoshop, Illustrator, and Sketch, amongst others. UI Kits are an especially good jumping off point for our own projects, so let’s jump in!
