Right from the start, GUI Design Studio was built with the ability to link in libraries of common design components so that you can reuse them within different projects. This has been extended in version 4.0 with custom elements within libraries and the new templates feature.
This is also a really useful way of sharing your designs. If you work in a team, or in an organisation that creates multiple products, you can share complete designs, templates of multi-page design patterns or individual components. Not only does this help save lots of time, it also promotes consistency and best practice in your designs.
What’s been missing is an easy way for you to get access to design libraries and to share your own.
So we’ve just launched www.guidesignpatterns.com where you can download libraries, templates, samples and patterns, and make your own contributions to the community. So, even if you work on your own, you’ll be able to benefit from the work of others and to share your work with them.
Our aim for this site is to build up an extensive resource of common design patterns and elements to help you create your prototypes as quickly as possible.
