Is a light or dark UI better?

    It really depends on personal preferences and the type of the app. Also depends on when you are using the tool and the content it has (photo, text, audio...)

    For exemple, I wouldn't see Spotify with a Light UI and I would definitely like the design tool I currently use to have a dark interface. Recently I've started to add a locked dark blue grey rectangle behind the artboards.

    For me, in this particular case, I would go with the Dark but definitely would alternate between the 2 options depending if I work at the office or at home (long nights in my home office).
