Most popular tags for UI-UX designer

Recently, our team has faced an interesting thing. While loading another shot on dribbble, and entering several tags as usual, we realised that this tool might be used more effectively and we started our own examination. There are loads of articles devoted to significance of “correct” hashtags and their usage, but further on we are going to talk about targeted tags, specific for design environment.

What searches are oftener used by our potential customer? What does he want to see? And the most important one, what do we designers need to add to our portfolio?

Fortunately, dribbble provides an open access to the list of frequently used tags, so we have studied this information and arranged it into logical groups. Our review deals with the most used tags in UI/UX design. In the following review, we will give examples of these popular tags and in brackets indicate the number of requests.
