Ready to use design systems and UI kits
designsystems.com/open-design-systems — a huge directory of open design systems. Not adapted for dapps, but will shortcut the frontend for you.
(more links are coming)
If you don’t have a designer on your team, use Manrope, Inter or Hack.
If you are a designer, here are a few links:
www.are.na/iryna-nezhynska/open-source-and-free-fonts - most of them have web fonts
velvetyne.fr/ and http://collletttivo.it — open source fonts type foundries.
Backgrounds / images
Get a helping hand from AI and algorithmic design:
DALL-e — for the overall concept. If you don’t have an account, find me and let’s use mine.
doersino.github.io/uji — a minimalist generator – press the buttons and play with the sliders.
play.ertdfgcvb.xyz — ASCII / type animated backgrounds
mutable.gallery — randomly generated b&w artworks. Give author credits when using them.
Generally on branding
Give your project a strong name. Don’t do “intentional” spelling mistakes — this will cause troubles with product promotion, or you will need to rename it.
If you are behind the schedule, just skip visual branding. Focus on UX, microcopy and good-looking UI.
If you have time, if your designer has time, ping me on martix channel: @eirena:matrix.org
