Quickly designed a Menu UI inspired by @Matt Gentile's "Dropdown Menu UI." Feel free to do whatever you'd like with it! Download the .PSD here.

friendly design, cool.
Remove the PSD before my lawyers get involved. I'm also notifying dribbble that you are releasing something that I'm selling for free. Did you not get the memo that this is not allowed? Read the comments on the post that you rebounded from for the reason why you're not allowed to do what you did.
@Matt Gentile Sorry mate! I would've certainly deleted this shot if you weren't so hostile and mentioning "lawyers" in the first sentence, but I think I'll leave it here :) I entirely designed this from 100% scratch and it differs entirely from your 'Dropdown Element UI." In fact, I could find hundreds of other 'freebies' that resemble yours even closer. I would rather find this a compliment that someone finds your work inspiring and chose to design something similar but in their own style. Therefore, I'm leaving it here for others to share for their own good since this is completely my design. I didn't steal your .PSD, fonts, icons or anything.
I could honestly careless about removing this shot and .PSD, as I clearly designed this for fun/practice while it has nothing to do with your "releases" but due to your attitude given, I had second thoughts of leaving it online.
Doesn't hurt to respond nicely man! :)
Thats something new (the arrow).
hmmm...There is nothing very unique about either dropdown element. @Dylan Opet, much better idea with the arrow. This element and style has been repeated over and over again over a thousand themes/tutorials.
Step 1: Learn how to be more creative. Step 2: Stay off of Dribbble if you don't want designers to rebound your work. Step 3: Come to the realization that you don't have lawyers and this is not illegal
I have to agree with matt here.. that you did this as a practice is normal but now your shot is "competing" against it and you can't deny that it's the same except for that arrow.. font - names - visuals - ranking of elements - stroke bg - padding etc... I think you would gain more respect if you just admit this and share the shot from matt as a download option i mean you've got to give the creator some respect right..
And if im reading the description in matt's shot right, he's clearly mentioning that he's to busy atm so the upload will have some delay. I also would be pissed as hell if someone copied my created style and takes the download credits..
I do think that the whole lawyers part is kind of over exaggerating but it's not completely unfair right.. i mean that download post will generate a lot of traffic and thus income (i guess) * * for him :p
Just sharing my opinion though i don't know the both of you but i love you both. We're all on the same court haha
@Eelco Guntlisbergen My download will generate lots of traffic (whopping 35 followers) and income when I designed this element in less than 15 minutes and released it for completely free. I can understand completely from a point you're coming from, but the main reason why I'm not removing this is due to his attitude.
All in the end, I designed this from scratch giving him total respect of being inspired from his shot and was only simply rebounding it and letting others resource my design for free. My shot is absolutely no where near "competing" and his/mine UI dropdown looks like every other unoriginal drop down (like this and this and this and this). I could definitely keep going but I think we all get the point.
How can one design such generic UI elements then get upset if someone does something similar with similar elements?
• Universal generic iconography…check
• Low radii drop-down boxes…check
• Nondescript menu terms…check
Matt thinks he owns that combination? Get out of here.
Heck, Matt's "original" dropdown menu UI isn't even close to the first UI to be created in such a manner.
To come here and spout empty threats is also against the Playbook…
Pssst, looks better than matts, but don't tell him I said that, he will make me sit in the corner again :*(
