Open a new document size of 800×600 and save it.
Click on foreground color box and set its color to #111111. Now press ctrl/cmd+backspace to fill the background color with selected color.
Create a new blank layer and name it ‘noise’. Hit ctrl/cmd+backspace again to fill it with same color we used in background.
Now go to Filter > Noise and add about 2px of monochromatic noise. Change the layer opacity to 50%.
Now take the rounded rectangle tool with radius of 10px and draw a rectangle about 500×400 dimension. Don’t worry about the color we will add layer styles in a minute. Name the layer as ‘form’.
Double click the ‘form’ layer and add these layer style. Click OK.
Select the form area by ctrl/cmd+click on the vector mask thumbnail to make a selection with whole form area.
Now with the current selection select the marquee tool or hit M in you keyboard. Now press Shift+Alt key together, you will see the mouse cursor changed with a little ‘x’ under the selection cursor. This modified selection tool will select the interacted area of current selection and selection you will draw by the tool. Now make a rectangle area by holding both Shift and Alt in same time like the preview.
So finally you will select some portion of the top of the rectangle.
Create a blank new layer with the selection active and fill the selection with any color by pressing alt+backspace. Name the layer to ‘header’. Now double click the layer and add these layer styles.
The form now should look like this
Add some guide for easily align the form elements.
Create a rounded rectangle with 10px radius like the preview and add these layer styles.
Add some text with color of #444444 and group it with the input box rounded rectangle. The input box should look like the images below. I have copied three times and changed the text.
For the password I have added bullet point. Typing bullet point is little tricky! To type bullet, hold down alt key then type 0149 (alt+0149) then release alt key. The final result will look like this.
Let’s add a nice looking submit button. Make a rounded rectangle shape with 20px and about 150px width and 50px height.
Add some layer styles you see below.
Add some text with layer styles gray to white gradient and drop shadow. I used the font ‘Myriad pro’ with semi bold font face. You are free to use any other fonts.
Now save this png above, add and resize it like the preview.
Desaturate it using Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. Now group all element of the submit button to one and name the group to ‘submit’.
Let’s make a hover or Mouse down state for the submit button. Duplicate the submit button group and hide/delete the Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. The big idea is when we press the button the oval will look green
Now modify the adjustment layer a little to differentiate the button state. Remove stroke, modify Drop shadow and inner shadow and other styles remains same.
Final result should look something like this. If you have anything to ask please comment and we can discuss it there.
