One year of UI Design – Day 4

April 3, 2014

I planned to watch a tutorial on flat design yesterday, but the day was fully planned and by the time I got home at night I was too tired to do anything more. Since today will be busy again and I didn’t want to skip another day, I decided to start the day with some UI design before breakfast.

I worked out the sketch of the menu. I’m aware it’s still very basic, but many good things start small. I made a light and a dark version in collapsed and expanded state. The top icon is to collapse and expand the menu and the second icon is to drag the menu around. I like the simplicity of the menu, though already found that this menu can only work if you don’t have too many items. If you have more items you might want to make the buttons smaller or start working with two columns like the Adobe Photoshop menu.

With this menu there is still a lot of room for improvement, so maybe I’ll do a follow-up on this one some day.
