iPhone PSD Vector Kit


Today, we are glad to release the iPhone Starter Kit, a set that comes with several button elements as well as six different iPhone interface options. This pack may be useful for mobile developers and front-end designers who need a professional way to show mock-ups to clients or to work out ideas. This set was designed by Renee Rist1 especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

Behind the design Link

As always, here are some insights from the designer herself:

“This iPhone Vector Pack was created entirely in Photoshop. The elements in this set are a combination of vector and real screenshots. Last month, I was asked to create a mobile website mock-up using the iPhone as a medium. I needed to show several parts of the interface, none of which I had graphics for. I set out to create an iPhone “starter kit” for myself.

This iPhone Vector Pack comes with several button elements, as well as six different iPhone interface options (which you can turn on and off in Photoshop). I hope this freebie pack will be useful for mobile developers and front-end designers who need a professional way to show mock-ups to clients or to work out ideas.”

Thank you very much, Renee! We appreciate your efforts.

    This is really useful for native application mockups.

    I’d love to see one more geared towards WebApp development…

    Sadly my ‘Photoshop skills’ are more like ‘Photostop kills’!

    Nice job. We built one a few months back too and have been adding to it ever since. It’s all shape based (vector) as well.

    Thanks a Lot

  20. 24

    nice design

  21. 25

    Hm, but most of the elements inside are just flattened. The entire keyboard is flattened layer, there are no layer styles to define buttons and all that.

    Actually, only very little portion of UI is recreated by you using layer styles, most of it is just screengrabbed from iPhone and pasted in Photoshop.

    Very misleading.

    é o baguio é bom memo!

    @Daemon – Why would you need to alter the keyboard? All the items you’d need to alter for a presentation/mock-up are editable (buttons, pressed keyboard button, application, text, pop-up area, etc). If someone wanted to alter the keyboard, that is not iPhone standard, and it would be misleading to the client (or end-user).

    I flattened standard layers to save on file size. No one should need to alter iPhone standards anyhow, and if they do — that’s out of the scope of what this was designed for. :)

    I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it.

    Thank you SOOOO much for sharing!!!! It was super useful for my projet!

  25. 29

    @Renee, nah man, it was a great start to push me into searching full PSD of iPhone UI. Why would i need full PSD UI? Well, for creating iPhone ready websites and applications. Simple.

    Very nice! Thank you Renee Rist & SM

    Many in the UX community like to spend quite a bit of time in “wireframing mode”, where simply black line sketches show a developer how the designer is thinking. This helps to communicate ideas, without having to do long trips through a design done in photoshop. At the end of the day, the photoshop glossies are required, but to get to something that is close to final, wireframes are an awesome tool.

    I created this Visio wireframing toolkit, available for free to help the UX community out. It can be a great compliment to this and other iPhone mockup PSDs out there (especially the awesome set at Hope it is of benefit.

    URL to the wireframe toolkit at:

    Do great things. Cheers. Brett

    just for testing – great stuff

    Any chance of a higher-resolution mockup/template? Would love something like this but at higher resolution for poster-size prints! Thanks! I know that the UI elements are vector, but a high-resolution iphone render would be awesome. mikee60369 AT “aol” dot com.

    Great Job! This was perfect for an ad I had to do!
