🟢
Last updated: February 8, 2024

Looking for real UX/UI Design inspiration and examples of best practices for designing apps, software, screen flows and components for digital products? Look no further than this comprehensive collection of UX/UI Design Pattern resources!

Whether you are designing wireframes or the UI of a new product, chances are the flows or problems you are working on have already been designed by other designers in other products before. Examples include things like login flows, user onboarding, date pickers, chat interactions, image uploading etc.

What are UX/UI Design Patterns?

UX, UI and Product Design Patterns are familiar, reusable and recurring ways of designing things in a User Interface.

If there is a problem your product is trying to solve for your users, there's no need to reinvent the wheel, as many best practices have already been designed, tested and documented in the form of design patterns.

While there will always be the need to innovate, adjust, repattern and create original designs, learning the foundations and how to apply them first is always a good place to start.

This list includes some of the best sites to learn from and get inspired by real UI and UX design examples and patterns in live digital products, like mobile apps, software and SaaS products.
