Solid: 30 Free GUI, Icons and Website PSD Templates Featuring Contour-style Graphics

Trends in web as well as in mobile design tend to come and go like fashion. Truly devoted UI designers only catch on those that are worth it. Nowadays flat style runs the show. Microsoft's Metro UI started the trend, while Apple's iOS7 gave it the real boost.  Designers all over the world give preference to plain shapes, simple graphics, minimal coloring, bold typography and the absence of various lavish effects when it comes to prototyping website and mobile app interface designs. Flat style involves the use of various elements starting at icons with long shadows and not ending up at line-style graphics.

Speaking of line-style graphics, we are starting to see another strong trend. So-called “ghost” buttons, contour style icons, functional blocks and areas with bold borders have started to flood the web and mobile interfaces recently. Despite of having transparent or semi-transparent canvases they nicely stand out even from a video or fully illustrated backgrounds, though, to be honest, they look best on solid color backdrops. Simple and sharp typography effectively co-works with this type of graphics as well. Moreover, by adjusting the thickness of a border stroke you can easily adapt it to various designs.

Today's collection is dedicated to these new tendencies. We've curated three main categories: GUIs, website layout templates and icons.

GUIs will help you to quickly gather interfaces, literally brick-by–brick, whereas icons will add finishing touches to your projects. And if you want to get some inspiration and explore some excellent samples, you can set your eyes on our free website layout mockups that demonstrate how contour-style components should be properly implemented into website design. We hope you like what you get to see...
