Understanding how to use Photoshop well requires a lot of practice. You can’t be afraid of testing design effects to see what they look like. But when first getting started the whole process of creating a digital interface can be stressful and off-putting. Thankfully designers are oftentimes happy to release their own designs as freebies for others to study and utilize.
This gallery includes a handful of brilliant PSDs for mobile applications and website layouts. Everything here is free to download and play with on your own. You can learn a lot by opening these files to study how other designers create page elements, add color, and organize the interface.

I’ve been a fan of icon design for years. Much like how a logo represents the tone and personality of a company, an icon represents a program or app. Both make use of a tiny canvas size and often have a lot to say with little space to say it.
Ever since iPhone apps started picking up traction, icon design has improved more and more. With time, designers and developers have been able to practice creating a beautiful, stylish and slick icon that suits the device it’s on, and looks great at high resolution and when it’s a tiny icon on a home screen.
It’s important to mention that it’s remarkably challenging to create an icon that looks good – it can take an extraordinary amount of work and skill to create something that looks simple, and the more complex a design, the more talent is required. Read More
