Todays freebie is called Flato Lite, it is a flat user interface kit containing the essential elements needed in order to compose a user interface. After publishing so many flat design related freebies, it was only a matter of time before I had enough material in order to construct a flat user interface kit.
While making this flat user interface kit, I had only one condition, any font, glyph, or icon that I would use, it had to be free. The reason behind this is, I guess not many of you buy expensive fonts, or glyph collections. If I didn’t have that condition, and you wanted to use this kit as is, you would have been forced to make some compromises.
My first objective was to find a suitable alternative for Proxima Nova, after an extensive research I finally settled for Montserrat. Its a free font that is also part of the Google Fonts family, so this means it would be safe for web also.
For the headings I was also certain that I would use Proxima Nova Soft, a nice rounded font that would flow really well with the rest of the elements. Unfortunately Proxima Nova Soft is another expensive font. Initially as an alternative I considered Quicksand, since its very similar to Proxima Nova Soft and it is free, but then I settled for ASAP. It is not as rounded as the other two i mentioned, but it still flows very well with the rest of the user interface elements.
If you think that some elements are missing from the user interface kit, rest assured this is only the lite version. Very soon I will release a second version of Flato, which will contain literally everything that you might every need in regards to creating a flat user interface. Next week I am planning to release the CSS version of Flato Lite, subscriber to my newsletter if you haven’t already and I will let you know as soon as it is done.Download PSD Subscribe For CSS
