Ribbons and Tags

These elements are extremely helpful when designing blogs and e-commerce websites. Ribbons can be applied in almost any container with a special marketing message. The tag elements are common to categories to posts. These can be used in sidebars and below article content.

Of course, the messaging layer can be used in tooltips. Tooltips are seen all over the web these days.

Pricing Tables

In most service-oriented websites or membership sites – an attractive pricing table is almost always a must. The likes of Netflix, Lynda.com and TreeHouse.com – an easy to read pricing table is a good measure of success.

As you see, Dark UI’s pricing table can be applied easily to your next design. A simple change in the color scheme and Voila!

Navigation Menus, Sliders Etc.

What’s a good website without a good navigation? Let’s not even discuss this part. Scroll bars are often used in filtering search results. For websites that display items for sale – such as e-commerce websites, sliders and scrollbars are good UI for filtering and sorting mechanisms.

Other areas where sliders are used are in web forms and such.
