End feature debates

The UI Patterns card deck is a library of different ways of solving common design problems. By also rationalizing about how, when, and why such solutions should be used, the deck of design patterns will help end feature debates, provide a shared design language among your peers, and help you get a clear understanding of why you’re doing what you’re doing, and why you’re not doing what you’re not doing.

Deliver great products, faster

Design patterns save both you and your users time. You will save time by not reinventing the wheel. Users save time by not having to learn new interface systems.

Recipe #1: What do we need?

Before you begin designing your new product, go through all cards and select appropriate design patterns for your forthcoming design endavour. Although simple and undirected, this approach will most likely spur new ideas and broaden your design vocabulary.

Recipe #2: Did we forget anything?

Design patterns seldom work alone. Examine the “See also” section to find related patterns that either complement or contrast a pattern.

Recipe #3: Is there another way?

Some design patterns work in opposite pairs and thus represent clear design choice alternatives. Examine the “In contrast to” section to help examine whether you are on the right path.
