Dark Mode UI 
Best Practices 🌚

Hi Friends! πŸ‘‹

So what exactly is a dark mode first?

A dark mode is a night-friendly color theme that mainly focuses on using dimed/grey colors for surface and UI elements. Darker colors reflect less light while still providing a great reading experience. All thanks to the high contrast between sharp elements and subtle surfaces.

But how do you achieve this level of contrast? Of course, you'll need to pull some strings.

So here are my best practices to help you on your way to the dark side.


  • Plan your color use

  • Brand your dark color

  • Reduce color saturation

  • Communicate depth

  • Ensure your dark mode contrast

  • Design light mode first

  • Use base colors to design dark mode

  • Don't overuse dark mode
