As a software and web developer, I
spend most of my time writing code and spend a lot less time
designing interfaces. Honestly, I just don't have the time to spend
on interface design, but even if I did have the time, it's
definitely not my strong suit.
That's why I usually leave the UI side of things to the
professionals, and I look for designs and components that are
available in one of two ways: free, or cheap.
Of course, the catch with wanting UI designs and components free
or cheap is finding ones that are also of high quality. Well,
that's not a problem any more.
I'd like to introduce you to Designmodo.
Designmodo is an online resource that is chalk-full of goodness.
They have website designs, components, interface packs, as well as
tutorials, and even code!
Another couple of cool features offered by Designmodo are their
Inspiration and Resource sections. If you're in the process of
building out your UI but need to find some inspiration, or maybe
you need to brush up on good A/B testing practices, then take a
look in the appropriate section there.
I personally think that their UI packs are fantastic! Even
better than that, they also give you working examples on how to get
things working, so you're not left on your own to figure things
Good Recommendations Summary
I am currently using some of Designmodo's components on a new
project, and I am really happy with things. They have a good
selection of high-quality components that have an excellent,
modern, aesthetic to them. I highly recommend you check them
