UI Design Notes

As a non-designer who has to design, I am putting together this collection of UI snippets of pretty design which are, importantly, easy to emulate.

The idea for this collection is to build up a repertoire of design techniques that can be easily applied. This is useful for those moments where you simply do not have the inspiration, idea or energy to think of something new.

“Good artists copy. Great artists steal.”
