Internet is full of freebies for web designers and developers. Today, we will be covering 42 free UI Kits and templates. All of them are editable in PSD format and mostly covering all of the basic UI elements such as textfield, checkboxes, radio buttons, buttons, drop down menu and some other cover extensive list of elements.
Well, you might say, "They're gorgeous! But what can I do with it?". The simplest way to use it - Prototyping. You can create wireframe/prototype to present your idea to your client. You also can use this UI kit to reskin HTML/Software/App form.
Mac and Windows platforms, they both render the form interface differently, and it's inconsistant in different browsers as well. So, I have found a few tools, tutorials that might able to give you a head start to make sure you know what to do with these cool free vectors and nicely done User Interface Kit.
However, you will need to do a little bit of investigation to integrate it. But once you've figure it out, you will have an amazing form in your website!
- jqTrasform: jqTrasform is a jQuery styling plugin. It's very easy to integrate and reskin. Most importantly, they've done their best to make it work on ie 6+, safari 2+, firefox 2+
- Niceform: Niceforms is a script that will replace the most commonly used form elements with custom designed ones. You can either use the default theme that is provided or you can even develop your own look with minimal effort.
- Uniformjs: Uniform masks your standard form controls with custom themed controls. It works in sync with your real form elements to ensure accessibility and compatibility. You can design your own theme with Uniformjs theme kit and create most of the code you’ll need using their custom theme generator.
- FancyForm: FancyForm is a powerful checkbox replacement script used to provide the ultimate flexibility in changing the appearance and function of HTML form elements. It's accessible, easy to use and degrades gracefully on all older, non-supporting browsers.
They're absolutely something you need to keep it in your graphic/design library. Most of them are organised really well with label and folder in psd files, so it will save your time to make modification. I hope you enjoyed this post. :)
