Simple and Fresh Website

This tutorial will teach you to make a simple, colorful design. The multiple boxes will divide the information very well. You can use the colors for importance.

Step 1

Open a new document in Adobe Photoshop of about 650×500 pixel. Fill it up with white. With your Rounded Rectangular Tool draw a rectangular. Go to Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay. Here set it just like below and make sure you check the “reverse” box.

Now to make those little flowers and grass. You take your Lasso Tool and start drawing flowers and leaves shapes. This is with what I came up with. They don`t have to be perfect and just need to look like some.

For the menu, make a new document, draw in it a small rounded rectangular and fill it with the same green you ended the header of. Now cut it in two and drag and drop the parts on the website. I only have 3 buttons, but you can have as many as you like.

The header is done. So Ctrl+Right click on every layer, without the first layer and Merge Layers.

Step 2

For the text above use the following color (#708348). The title should be bigger and with “bold” or “strong” and the subtitle should be smaller and not ”strong”.
