Web app development has gone from strength to strength over the last 5 or so years. From frameworks like Ruby on Rails and Django for Python, it’s never been easier to get into coding web apps. But one thing that’s always been time consuming (at least for me) has been building out the UI. HTML and CSS frameworks like Bootstrap have helped to speed things up, but because they’re so popular, they’re also highly recognisable and it means your web app may look extremely similar to many others.
Fortunately, there are some beautifully designed UI kits and icon packs that are out there that have been generously made available for free. These UI elements can help to make a web app look incredible, and can save hours and days of work. We’ve put together a collection of some of our favourite fresh, new UI elements that are all available to download for free – but please do check the license if you want to use them for commercial projects.
