Consistency and readability in Justinmind’s Font Awesome UI library

We recently wrote about the importance of proximity in UI layout design. Proximity means that UI elements and icons placed close together should correspond to each other, so that users are able to recognize and associate them easily. Make sure that the icons you place side by side are closely related to make it easy for users to find their way around.

Also, note that all of the icons have been designed using vector graphics. This means that they are scalable and that color editing your icons is simple and fast. We’ll explore vector graphics in depth later on in the post. If you’re in the market for more vector files, check out our post on places to get free vector images.

Getting started with Justinmind’s Font Awesome UI library

Follow these 4 steps to get started with Justinmind’s Font Awesome icon library:

  1. Download the Justinmind tool if you haven’t already
  2. Download the free Font Awesome icon library from our Interactive UI components page
  3. Justinmind will open on your desktop
  4. Navigate to the Libraries palette, where you’ll see the Font Awesome library
  5. Start adding icons to your design

Prototyping a mobile app with Justinmind’s Font Awesome icons

In our example, we’re going to create a hotel reservation mobile app wireframe using Font Awesome icons. Note that we are using Justinmind’s iPhone 13 Pro mobile template, but you can use any of our mobile device templates.

Font Awesome UI design iPhone example

Creating the initial screen with Font Awesome icons

Let’s start by creating our app’s initial screen

Font Awesome UI design home screen

From the iOS components library, drag the Status bar to the top of the canvas and place it carefully around the notch.

From the Basic Widgets library, drag an Image widget to the canvas and place it below the header. Add an image of your hotel. Use Text widgets to give the hotel a name, description and price. Use the Font Awesome Ranking star icon in the Business category to give it a star rating out of five.

Below, create a grid of hotel features and helpful information. Start by dragging a Table widget from the Basic Widgets library to the canvas. In the Properties palette, change the number of rows to 2 and columns to 6.

Next, choose a set of icons from the Font Awesome library to add to the table. To match our example, choose the following icons:

  • Kitchen set from the Household category
  • Calendar days solid from the Time category
  • Image regular from the Image and video category
  • Map location from the Camping category
  • Comments solid from the Communication category
  • Plus from the Maths and symbols category

Drag the icons directly into the table. Note that the cells in your table are set up with central alignment by default, so your icons will automatically be slotted into the center of the cell. No need to fiddle around with spacing! Learn more about prototyping grids in Justinmind.

If you want to resize or change the color or any other styling of your Font Awesome icons, go right ahead! The Properties palette is your oyster.

At the bottom of the canvas, add a Button from the Basic Widgets and write “Find your room” in it.

Creating the Services screen with Font Awesome icons

Next, we’ll create the Services screen.

Font awesome icons UI library screen example

To do so, go to the Screens palette and click the ‘+’ button to add a second screen. Give it a name (Services for instance) and click “OK”. While you’re at it, create two additional screens and name them “Contact” and “Comments” respectively.

Click on the Services screen in the Screens palette to start editing it. Now it’s time to choose the services, features and amenities you want to include in this screen.

To match our design example, choose your preferred icons that correspond to: hotel amenities, dining, outdoor activities, and other (e.g. shopping, gaming and music).

Give each category a header (using the Text basic widget) and group each category together (right click “Group”). Grouping UI elements together allows you to edit and move them all around the canvas at the same time. Place your groups of UI elements on the screen to match our example.

If you’d like to include a carousel in your design as we have, follow the instructions to learn how to do so in our support center.

The Contact screen with Font Awesome icons

Now, go to the Contact screen in the Screens palette.

Font awesome UI design contact screen

To reproduce the map we have in our example, drag the Maps screen example from the iOS components library to the canvas. If you want users to be able to interact with the map (i.e. search it and pinpoint locations), drag and drop the Map pin marker.

Then, drag a Rectangle from the Basic Widgets library to the canvas. Change its color to white and reduce its height so that it only covers the bottom half of the canvas. Make sure that it’s sitting on top of the map, rather than underneath it.

Drag a set of Font Awesome icons on top of the rectangle. These should be related to travel. In our example, we’ve included the Bicycle, Plane, Car and Train icons. Group the icons together and give the group a header (e.g. “How to get to your hotel”).

Now do the same but with icons related to communication. We’ve included the Comments solid, Phone and Envelope icons.

Finally, create a form with a button at the bottom of the canvas so that users can get in touch with the hotel directly from this screen. Learn how to prototype forms and inputs with Justinmind.

The Comments screen with Font Awesome icons

Now, go to the Comments screen. This is where users can read reviews and feedback from previous guests to get an idea of whether a particular accommodation will be to their liking.

Font Awesome UI design comments screen

To design this screen, start by adding a header with a Text from Basic widgets.

We’ve used a star rating system, using the star and thumbs up/down Font Awesome icons. However, there are plenty of other user satisfaction icons to choose from, such as the hearts and smiley/frown emoji icons.

To match our example, drag a combination of empty and solid star icons to the canvas. Change their color to yellow (#ffc444 to match our example) and group them together. Below, drag a Paragraph widget to the canvas and write a hotel review in it. Group the star group and Paragraph together and place them at the top of the page, below the header.

Now copy the group and paste it to create additional user reviews. Remember to change the star rating and the text!

To match our example use Thumbs up and create a Thumbs down icon by flipping it vertically, to distinguish between positive and negative feedback.

Finally, add a Button to the bottom of the canvas and name if “Write your feedback”, so additional users can give feedback about the hotel. Learn about button design for more creative wisdom.

Font awesome icons customized UI library in Justinmind

Our icons have been created using vector graphics, the standard for icons creation in user interface design. This makes a huge difference to your design process.

Vector images are stored as mathematical formulas and don’t rely on pixel information (unlike raster images). This means that they are totally independent of size and can be customized with different styles (color, border, transparency, shadow etc.) as well as enlarged or shrunk without loss of quality.

Go ahead and check out our post on the power of vector images if you want to learn more.

Save time with readymade icons

Using our Font Awesome UI library saves you precious design time. Drag and drop any of our readymade icons directly onto the canvas to build out your designs in no time.

And don’t forget, icons are a great way to make your design accessible to users. Icons are fast to recognize and need no translation, making them a great usability tool for your UI design. Remember to stick to standard icons for the most important aspects of your design!
