On Switching from HEX & RGB to HSL — Sara Soueidan – Freelance-Front-End UI/UX Developer

#Colors #CSS #Productivity #UIDesign

Learn how and why to switch from RGB to HSL in your projects.

Hue: your base color, pick a value from 0 to 360 (think about the color wheel)
Sauration: how “intense” (rich or dull) your color will be (%)
Lightness: add or remove white from your colors, 50% is the middle ground, below you add black, above white. Key for creating shades of color.

FreeSpace Sketch Plugin: Evenly space selected Layers, Groups, Artboards and Symbols by a defined amount.

#Sketch #Plugins #Productivity #UIDesign

I created this plugin because the built in "distribute" tool wasn't giving enough control and the "grid" tool being very powerful requires more settings than I want to deal with every time. 

Evenly space – vertically or horizontally – selected Layers, Groups, Artboards and Symbols by a defined amount:

1) Select the elements
2) Press Command + Alt + Shift + S
3) Enter a spacing value

Enjoy!
Francesco

Animations in iOS: Tab Bar concepts – Flawless App Stories – Medium

#iOS #Mobile #AppDesign #Animation #Motion #UIDesign

A great selection of animated tab bars. Some are over the top but they are nonetheless great explorations of what’s possible and how to bring delight into UIs with motion and sometimes humor. Heads up: cute and cool alone are not enough, try to get some feeeback from real users. How often are your users going to see this animation? Does it take too long to execute? Or is it just the right speed. Enjoy!
