UI kits have become an integral (and fun) part of website design.
These clever Photoshop design templates allow website designers to integrate their own vision and ideas on how the site should look and behave, with a premade template or platform that provides the framework and basic functionality of the webpage being created.
The type, number, style and layout of the navigation and function elements of most UI kits are usually completely customisable and designer-defined. There are different types of UI kits available for purchase and download. The most common type of UI is the PSD format; this particular type may also feature .asl components and functions like brushes and patterns which make integrating UI PSD kits of this kind even easier and more efficient.
UI Kits are not just pretty to look at, but they also allow web designers to solve common navigation and functionality problems like online notification boxes, interactive roll out, drop down menus, etc. Since UI kits are amazingly detailed, web designers end up with a more comprehensive and user-friendly end product i.e. a very well designed website. In a nutshell, UI kits are an easy and visually rewarding way to help in the creation of your website.
