And we begin with the designer’s best friend, icons! Icon's are great because they communicate without using words, expert icon designers study semiotics in order to create small images that are recognizable as having some sort of meaning or connection to an object, action, word etc. In this section we have selected a handful of mini icons, detailed, social media and web font icons.
The 'user interface' or 'user experience' for designer's is exactly it implies, it is the experience the users of their products will have and how they will interact with, a sharp, well designed UI Kit can really help to improve the experience that you give to your end users, or just speed it up a bit!
