The folks at Mercury Intermedia have released their iOS 9.3 UI kit in Adobe Illustrator vector format. It is the most complete and up to date iOS UI Kit released to date. Unlike many UI kits created in raster image format (typically PSDs), this one is so much more flexible because all the items are full vectors—making them perfect for mockups.
The iOS 9.3 UI kit is free to download, and weighs in at about 29MB in size. The file also comes in SKETCH format. If you have any reason to re-create iOS screen, this is a must-have!
If part of your design job is providing your company/client with images for social media use, you know how tedious it can be to keep up with what image sizes to use for what purpose on which site.
Thankfully, we have Advise.
Advise provides social media ad and image specs for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and other popular social sites.
EpicPxls has provided the new Google logo, and icons for Google, Google+, Maps, News, Business and Translate in vector format. They look great. At first glance, anyway.
The bad news is that EpicPxls chose the most convoluted and sloppy way to provide the icons to you. The file you will download is a single tiny PSD file. Each icon is saved in a Layer Group in the layers panel that contains various Shape layers for each color in the icon. So technically they are vector art. They’re just not the easiest to work with.
If you choose to select the appropriate shapes and paste them into Adobe Illustrator to save them as individual proper logo files (as I have), you’ll also notice that you may need to do some cleanup work on the paths.
Still, this is much easier than trying to find the official vector files on Google’s own Developer site.
