I will be preparing a GUI template to help the team's design process
towards a standardized interface smoother. But before I do that, I'd like
to hear what you think will be relevant and helpful to you, it helps me
prioritize what's most helpful now. I'm including some devs in the loop
with this too just to see if they have any input.
If don't know what a Graphical User Interface
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphical_user_interface> (GUI as in
"goooey") template is, it's a template mainly for designers while designing
products. Think of it like a sticker book where every control, list item,
text are individual stickers, and you put them together with a few given
rules like space, sizes, composition etc. So it's safe to say that I'll be
making some stickers for designers. This GUI template sticker book is
typically presented in file formats that designers usually work with, most
popularly Illustrator .ai, Sketch .sketch, and Photoshop .psd files. But
I'll be starting with either a .sketch or a .ai file.
Here are some examples:
Apple's GUI <http://www.teehanlax.com/tools/ipad/#>
Android's old version GUI
Google's Material Design GUI
This etherpad has a few ideas listed <http://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/GUI>.
I hope to help us all look and feel like one product soon and make
everyone's life as easy as possible while getting there. Let me know how
this can be integrated into your work better.
