Planning a web or app design project? Get to grips with UI templates for Figma and Adobe XD.
Ever wondered why iOS apps have a similar look and feel all across all different devices? Well, we’re going to tell you anyway. It’s because they all use visual elements from the same iOS UI kit. Ensure your next web or app design project runs smoothly with UX and UI templates.
What is a UI Template?
A “UI template” or “UI kit” is a set of ready-made visual elements designed for prototyping new apps or websites. With a great UI template, you can create a sleek and professional prototype UI in less time than it takes to make a cup of tea.
UI templates include graphics for all the knobs and dials internet users in 2020 use without thinking twice: navigation buttons, progress bars, scrollers, checkboxes, widgets, avatars, breadcrumbs, you name it. If it’s a visual UI element, you’re going to find it bundled in a UI template.
Why Should I Use UI Templates?
When it comes to demonstrating your app or website concept to colleagues or clients, it’s easy to fall into one of two traps.
If you have enough design experience under your belt, there’s a temptation to lovingly handcraft each and every design element in your prototype. We’re talking bespoke dropdown boxes, custom fonts in the text fields, the whole nine yards. Next thing you know, the client wants changes to what has become your pride and joy. Now you’re heartbroken and you have to start this painstaking process all over again.
On the other hand, it can be tempting to rush a proof of concept to the table on the basis that the look and feel of your UI will change further down the line. The problem is, it can be tough for a client to commit to your design if it looks as though it was drawn up on the back of Domino’s receipt.
UI templates mean never having to worry about these pitfalls again. With a UI template, you get access to a library of gorgeous and professional UI elements that can be fully customized to fit your aesthetic. Your prototype will look incredible and replicate the functionality of the final product right out of the gates, and the time that would have been spent agonizing over relatively minor design elements like navigation buttons and checkboxes can be spent refining that bigger picture.
Presenting a prototype that looks almost as good as the final product is not only a surefire way to impress, it also makes it easier to spot problems before any hard coding takes place and everything gets trickier and more expensive to fix. Best of all, using a UI template means all your visual elements can be arranged (and rearranged) on the fly without the need for any specialized design knowledge.
How Do I Use UI Templates?
All that’s left is to choose your fighter (Figma or XD), pick a UI template that fits your project and aesthetic, and that’s it. You’ll be dragging-and-dropping your way to high-fidelity prototypes in no time at all.
Figma or XD?
Figma and XD are both intuitive, powerful all-in-one UI design tools. In that sense, there’s no wrong answer as to which side you come down on. Flip a coin, rock-paper-scissors, have some fun with it. You’re not going to be disappointed either way.
The only hiccup is that most Figma templates are incompatible with XD, and most XD templates are incompatible with Figma.
We don’t want you getting your heart set on one of the amazing UI templates featured below just to find out that the template in question is incompatible with your favorite UI design tool. That’s why we’ve put together a handy guide to help you choose between Figma and XD.
