What is your approach when it comes to design your app?

Hey, devs!

Today I want to share this with you. As a developer, I always struggle with design things. I saw only two options:

  1. Bootstrap wich is noice but not unique;
  2. Hire a designer to make the things done;

But! This time I found the way between those two and bought a ready to use template on ThemeForest. It saved me tons of hours and costs less than $20.

What about you? What is your approach?

I recommend the fantastic Refactoring UI book by Adam Wathan and Steve Schoger. It's full of tips, tricks & guides to turn your plain data into a beautiful UI relatively easily. It has helped me a lot in improving my designs, up to the point where I now actually enjoy working on design tasks.

I'd say as a backend developer, I've been using templates from themeforest, colorlib...etc. but recently I've taken a keen interest in front end design and I've been trying to make my own templates. I've found that this gives me better control of the project. Normally I find inspiration from Pinterest, dribbble or random places on the internet. Check out this post I wrote I while back.

My way is "steal like an artist"

I browse Pinterest for inspiration and dope looking color schemes.

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer by a factor of exactly 40.

It's a scientific fact.
