I wanted to get into UI/UX Design since many years…yes, YEARS!
I put this into my ToDoList.txt file and finally I feel ready to start and to learn something new.
There are a lot of tutorial videos on youtube but I prefer to use again Skillshare where there is a proper section about this topic:

Which is the perfect software to use to build an app?
I found different opinions: someone is saying to use Sketch, someone else is saying that for the design also Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator are good. Mmm…So? What I have to use? I think I will use Illustrator..my best friend 🙂

Also Google decided to help me in this new adventure with the Material Design website:
“Material Design is a unified system that combines theory, resources, and tools for crafting digital experiences.”
Sounds super, no? There are also a lot of interesting materials to use like icons and guidelines.
Important: check the Resources section where you can download, for example, a simple layout template so you can start your own project in a second.

If you are more interested in Motion, you can check this link made by Google…
if you are a motion graphic designer like me and you want to create beautiful animation in After Effects and then export them to your app, well, thank you Airbnb Design for creating Lottie:
“Lottie is an iOS, Android, and React Native library that renders After Effects animations in real time, and allows native apps to use animations as easily as they use static assets.”

I want to share with you also this article “How to design native mobile apps” that is very interesting, this other article called “UX Design Resource Guide” and also this one about “How to use typography in UI Design”.

Now it is time to roll up our sleeves babe!

1. Find an idea
2. Sketch it
3. Start to illustrate it
4. Close the project
