This tutorial shows you how to use multiple vector shapes, layer styles, and various tools to create a mobile phone design. It’s a nice design with multiple small details explained.

Start working by creating a new file (File>New) of 1280×1024 px and 72 dpi

Then we should select the Rectangle Tool (U) to represent the background of the picture we’ll get on the final stage.

Next we shall select the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) (radius 55 px) to draw the cell phone body. Then press SHIFT button while using again the same tool with a radius of 2 px and this time to represent three prominences for the lateral buttons. Using the Add Anchior Point Tool, it’s possible to add one more top on the bottom part of the body for getting a correct shape. The layer’s color is #E4E5E6

Make a copy of the recently created layer and choose the Free Transform option to place the copy as it is shown below:

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Now we shall represent the panel of the buttons containing the ciphers of the cell phone. In this case it’s necessary to use the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) (radius of 55 px). Using the Add Anchior Point Tool, we should insert a top on the bottom. Select again the Convert Point Tool to make the corrections on the elements’ shapes. This new layer should be situated under all the previous made layers of the cell phone.

Make ten copies of the button’s layer and select then the Free Transform option to incline a little the buttons from the left side and the right one, placing the copies the same way represented next picture:

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Make one more copy of the button’s layer. Select the Alt button and the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) (radius of 5 px) to cut out the bottom part of the button the same way demonstrated below:

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Insert the buttons’ numeration, keeping the demands from the table below:

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

 

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

On the next stage we have to introduce the alphabet on the buttons:

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

 

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Insert the symbol from here - #

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

 

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Applying the Line Tool (U) (width 1 px), it’s possible to represent the symbol *, which color is #414142.

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Next we’ll insert the symbol + close to the previously drawn one - *

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

 

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Using the Rectangle Tool (U), try to make the symbol representing the gap, colored with #5B5C5D. Press SHIFT button while using the same tool to add the protuberances on the left and right sides.

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Let’s represent two more symbols applying the Custom Shape Tool (U) and the Line Tool (U) (width of 1 px), for representing the sound symbol and the Pen Tool (P) to indicate the pointer. The color is #414142 for both symbols.

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

The Free Transform option should change the shape of the sound symbol.

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Now we shall draw the symbol indicating the voice mail. In this case we’ll use the Line Tool (U) (width of 1 px) to represent the horizontal lines and the Ellipse Tool (U) to introduce by one ring on the left and right sides. Press Alt button while applying the Rectangle Tool (U) to cut out the rings on the line’s level. The line’s color is #414142

Next we should combine in a group all the layers belonging to the cell phone (press Ctrl button to mark out the necessary layers and then hold on the left mouse’s button to take the accentuated layers on Create a new group solution). Make a copy of the newly made group. Press Ctrl button to mark out the group’s copy and pres Ctrl+E. Using the Free Transform option, turn over the last processed layer and place it lower than the cell phone.

Nokia 5300 Cell phone interface

Make a mouse click on the same layer on the bottom part of the layers’ panel on Add a Mask solution. Using the Gradient Tool (G), try to dark out the reflection.
