Don’t pay for consumables that you can get at no cost at all, browse my collection first. I’m sure you’ll like at least some of the items.
Why did I decide to stockpile namely free UI kits for Sketch app? The answer is as plain as the nose on one's face – this vector design tool for Mac, entirely focused on user interface design, is becoming mucho popular day by day. New resources and plugins are coming out per diem. Sketch by Bohemian Coding is easy to pick up and it costs a jot of the price of Photoshop. It is so easy-peasy that anyone with little to no training can learn Sketch. It is a perfect tool for designing for multiple devices and systems (iOS, Android and Web design) and delivering assets.
Designers who have been using Sketch for some time note that it has increased their productivity. Did you know that Sketch was voted App of the Year by NetAwards, and most used Wireframing and User Interface Design tool on a survey responded by 4,000 designers? Sketch has been around for more than 4 years already, but started to make its meteoric way up over the past year. Its team is small, but users’ feedback is crucial for them. The app has one of the sprightliest communities on the web. It weights 41MB in disk space only, compared to Photoshop's 1.6GB.
The fact that you are greeted with an infinite canvas when you open Sketch, just like with native OS X apps, and have a familiar user interface with a Toolbar, Navigator and Inspector will tickle new users’ fancy. They will find it far more approachable because it doesn’t get in the way of producing simple designs. Sketch allows you to work with pixels, so you don't need to worry about other units (cm, ml, picas), color modes, pixels per inch, and all the extra burden that only matters to specific platforms. You’re not overwhelmed by a Toolbar where half of the options were intended for photo editing, digital painting and 3D. I don’t want to say that they are absolutely useless, but focusing on just user interface design will keep you more streamlined and less distracted. You will immediately apply everything you'll learn in Sketch.
In fact, Sketch comes preloaded with a number of user interface templates for iOS 9, Material Design and Responsive Web. They’ll be a great starting point both for beginner or expert designer, but store is no sore as they say. You can also download your own templates from the Web any time you need something offbeat and striking. Below you’ll see 40 best UI kits for Sketch resources designed by imaginative enthusiasts. All of them are free to download and use on your Mac both for commercial and personal projects. It’s always interesting to get an insight into other designers’ minds, to explore their ideas, clean your own palette after the finished project. Besides, UI kits are a great way to spot trends as they develop.
