Why should I use a UI kit?

UI kits give you the ability to create a website or an app from scratch.

You only need your personal touch and your creativity! 

We’re all looking to optimize the design process. And it makes sense! After all, building a UI design from scratch can be tedious and can take a lot of time – especially if your platform is complex. And especially if we don’t have the necessary resources to invest in the product design. So, what can we do? UI Kits, exactly! 

Well, UI kits are more like a supermarket where you go when you’re looking for individual ingredients for your UI UX design. The difference between a UI kit and a design system is that a design system does not only include the ingredients but also provides you with the entire cookbook – the design guidelines. A UI kit is basically a component library that can contain every element you need in order to create a user interface design. 

UI kits are composed of a large compilation of reusable elements, templates, styles, and other resources you might require in the design process. These design resources have become even more popular, with more and more UI UX designers starting to use Figma when creating product designs.

So, if you are looking to map all the elements you need when creating an app or a website, you can use a UI kit that will save you time and lead to higher productivity levels. In a UI kit, you will encounter buttons to design elements like images, graphics, and templates. The best part about UI kits is that they are responsive and organized, so you’ll be able to find everything you need quickly. This brings us to your advantages when using a UI kit.

Advantages of using UI Kits

  1. Time

There’s an old saying – “Time waits for no one” – and neither do deadlines. We sometimes feel like time is running out, but when time is the problem we can always find a shortcut that will help us to deliver the best solution available. When time is stressing us out we might neglect the quality of our UI design in order to deliver it at the right time. And there is nothing worse than delivering a user interface design that you don’t like. But the solution is waiting for us to make the call and use a UI kit in order to deliver faster designs and still be the creative person you are. 

Let’s imagine the next situation. You are just starting out a new project that you are very excited about. So, naturally, you need to do your research and start the creative process in order to put your ideas and thoughts into something your client can see. But, as you already know, the creative process might take up more time than you would expect and the clock is thinking and your client waiting. But your savior has come to rescue you and help you create the product design faster as a UI kit holds more than just elements, it has templates. So next time you are overwhelmed and stressed give UI kits a try and see for yourself how they can help you.

  1. Profitable

We can all agree on another saying – time is money. And being profitable is on everyone’s mind when starting out a business, launching a product, or building up a  new design. And using a UI kit can be just what you need to deliver better results in a shorter amount of time while triggering lower costs.

Even more so, using a UI kit differentiates you from your competitors as you will be able to create your design faster. And, with UI kits you can make changes faster. So, if your client doesn’t really like how certain elements from your design look or let’s say they want a different kind of button, you will be able to change it in no time and lead to less money spent.

 

  1. Consistency

When working for big companies or even for companies that need their website to be scalable and responsive in more than one region a UI kit will become your best friend. Consistency is key to any great UI design and sometimes this can get confusing. Yet, using the wrong element can be the end of your design. 

The best UI kits come with reusable elements and consistent elements and styles that can be used at any second. Consistency helps the creation of a deductible environment, it leads to the user being comfortable and having a great experience when using your design. Even more so, consistency is the one that keeps everything organized and clear from the start. 

  1. Focus

A UI kit helps you stay focused on your goal. When designing every little element seems to be crucial for your design, so, you try and give it your best all the time in order to deliver your best projects all the time. And it’s normal! But, for a non-designer your cards or your buttons, won’t really matter. If they understand their usability the rest is history. 

And a Ui kit is there for you, as it already has available o tone of options from which you can choose and see which one is the right element for you. So, next time you won’t need to spend so much time on one element as they are already created, and you can customize them! 

  1. Fast

Every UI UX designer wants and needs to act fast, and a UI design kit is the one that can help you do that. You have the ability to act fast and easy and if your client doesn’t like your initial design there is no reason to worry. 

A UI kit is your lifeline that you need to try when making changes to your is your worst nightmare. Making changes and editing your elements is easier than ever before, so next time you need to update the colors from your design, a single button will make the change automatically everywhere.

A UI design Kit that creates productivity and efficiency by developing elements that can be personalized and used by a UI UX designer or by everyone from a team. It creates accessible libraries that can store assets and be later used or integrated into a design. 

You don’t need to spend more time on your design, you just need a good UI kit! 

What would have taken us 5 hours to create takes us 15 minutes (and a lot less stress). And the time that was once dedicated to designing a single project can now be spent in designing not just one but five projects.
