Free Full Layered Facebook GUI PSD Kit


In this post we release a free Facebook GUI PSD Kit, designed by SurgeWorks1 and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers. The main idea behind the kit is to speed up the prototyping of Facebook application UIs and Facebook fan pages, thus sparing you from drawing all the comps and letting you customize all the texts, buttons and data as you need. As usual, the kit is free to use in all projects, without any restrictions.

The kit brings the Facebook vector icon and logo. Also, since the focus of this resource are the UI elements, it brings a main window with the header, menu and the chat window for you to set up your realistic mock-ups. Plus all the modal components, comment boxes, buttons, message boxes, tabs, etc. All the components are full layered, built using vectors and blending options, so that scaling and editing the objects will not be a problem.

Download the set for free!

The theme is released under Creative Commons. You can use it for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. Please link to this article if you want to spread the word. You may modify the kit as you wish.



The PSD set consists of 3 PSD files:

  • Facebook-GUI.psd contains all Facebook UI elements;
  • Facebook-App-Authorization-Request.psd and Facebook-App-Template.psd contain the basic structure for Facebook applications design.

    Awesome! This is one of the reasons I visit smashingmagazine each and every day… :)

  10. 11

    wow just when need them ! thnx a lot

  11. 12

    Nice! The examples contain several typos though – I’m assuming I can edit those out?

  12. 17

    lol I can’t believe the timing of this.

    I just spent 4 days doing just this to make a FB themed Powerpoint for the office Town Hall/year in review brief. Did it all in PS from scratch..used a few screen captures, mimic the fonts and everything, creating profile pages for each division etc etc.

    I’m just amazed this came out 2 days after the meeting was held.

    Ah well, it’s still a great download so thanks :)

  13. 18

    It would be really great if there were a Fireworks version too!

  14. 20

    Woohoo… Congratulations Ney & Renato for being featured on Smashing Magazine. :)

  15. 21

    Just what I needed! Thanks for the post – Hope to see updates since Facebook makes changes to their UI quite often! :D

  16. 22


  17. 23

    Cool stuff. Thanx a lot!

  18. 24

    great! thx!

  19. 25

    Thanks, for the great job! Really useful :)

  20. 26

    Thanks for great and very useful package! usual on smashing magazine :)

  21. 27

    As well-done and useful as this is, Facebook iterates their design fairly often. Granted, the changes are often small and un-noticeable to the average Facebook user, I think this is great for doing comping more general situations. Thanks for sharing it either way.

    This ‘kit’ is a copyright violation of Facebook’s look-and-feel.

    Using it could open you up to getting sued.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s released as Creative Commons.

      Dear Charles, the only goal here is to help developers to mockup, design and develop applications for Facebook quickly and professionally. With that, we can have a real idea of what the application is going to look like.

      I’m one of the designers who worked on this project. If there’s any problem with that, please someone from Facebook let us know. So, one more time, what we wanted is to make an application design/development easier and following the Facebook UI standards.

    • 30

      Only if you go and use this kit to make your own artwork/website not related to Facebook…

      Using this to help layout wireframes is pure gold. If you didn’t already screengrab/mimic a site that you needed to incorporate into your webpage, you’re doing something wrong.

      You sir, are an idiot.

  28. 37

    Thankyou for sharing it ;)

  29. 38

    Very cool download. In the middle of creating a custom facebook tab so this is much needed.

    Though with all the fantastic freebies and inexpensive stock images available now, I’m finding myself in need of an excellent Digital Asset Manager (DAM) for Mac.

    Anyone have any ideas?

  33. 42

    This is great! Thanks for sharing.

  34. 43

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! This is exactly what I need today. Just remember the new width spec for apps is 540 pixels. It’s wider in the GUI.

    • 44

      its going to be 520px for profile tabs, apps will remain 760px. So all good! Thanks for an awesome resource guys

  35. 45

    This is definitely great! Thank you! Cheers!

    Great! I had to make an entire page mock-up for a client a month ago. WHERE WAS THIS THEN!?

  40. 50

    I’m not that much FB fan so first thing that came to mind was fear of people abusing this… let’s hope it won’t happen then

  41. 51

    Wow! This will come in very handy for my future FBML and maybe websites! Thanks.

    • 54

      It’s worse than that – now you’re going to get grammar nazis shouting “could have” at you too. Hopefully they’ll at least be so ashamed of their pedantry that they’ll write in the third person…

  44. 55

    “Though with all the fantastic freebies and inexpensive stock images available now, I’m finding myself in need of an excellent Digital Asset Manager (DAM) for Mac.”

    Try Aperture – it’s a pro photo catalog/editor etc., but I find it invaluable for just having a sepaarte library with all my “collected images”, symbols etc.

  57. 69

    What a great collection, I’m definitely bookmarking these for future ideas. They all have a ‘professional’ feel to them too.

  58. 70

    Nice, but too bad facebook changes their interface every 3 months or so.

  59. 71

    Thanks. Now i’ll be developing FB app soon.

  60. 72

    Great Stuff……

  82. 94

    Usefull if you want to do “pishing website” …

  83. 95

    Great resource, but I find it rather odd that there isn’t a “Like” button in any of the files. Seems like that may be a good addition for the next round of revisions. Again, cheers!

    Philip, could you please specify what is out of date?

    Maybe if you help letting us know what is out of date we could help to keep up to date. But without contributing is not going to help ;) Cheers
