20 Free Top Shelf UI Kits for Web Designers

When it comes to web design, the UI elements that are included can, at times, make or effectively break (in more ways than one) the overall piece. Compromising the aesthetics and even the functionality of the design rendering it virtually useless. So we have to choose the UI elements carefully. Too subtle, and some users may not pick up on them. Too bold, and you risk compromising the fine balance between elements that can really tie the entire piece together. So today we have brought our web design readers a little treat. We have collected 20 top shelf UI kits that can help you add that special touch of class to your web design projects. All of these fantastic kits are available for free for both personal and commercial use. Most of the downloads consist of layered psd files unless otherwise noted.

  1. Thanks for including my Dark Purple Ui set :)

    This is a very nice collection and i hope to make more clean light designs,thanks

  2. E-Commerce Steps UI by PixelsDaily – This ui is not made ??by PixelDaily – just by me ;) ! Please change this!

      1. No, I thank you. I completely overlooked the icon on the site indicating who made it. It wasn’t until seeing your avatar here on your comment that I recognized the icon on PixelsDaily for what it was. :)

  3. This is a very handy resource, especially for the less design orientated web developers among us!

    I like the E-Commerce Steps UI form validation styles.

    1. Glad that it comes in handy. These designers have really created some stellar work to make our lives easier. Always nice to be able to shine a spotlight on them!

      1. Thanks for that link. That login form looks great, something I could use. Good idea releasing some free PSD designs.

        Mmmm, cheesecake :-)

  4. Hey Guys,

    Thanks for including so many MediaLoot resources on the list! Freebies are pretty awesome :-)

    Also, in case anyone is interested, the “Got Wood” UI kit at the top is designed by Tony Thomas.

      Also, I appreciate the name of the designer. I looked around on the site but didn’t see it anywhere. I’m glad you dropped that by!! :)

  5. Really great stuff here, I’ll definitely think about using some of these in my future projects. Much credit to all the great designers.
