How to Create an Effective Coming Soon Page
Here is a preview of the image that we are going to be creating:
Create a new document (1000X700px) and fill your background layer with a linear gradient ranging from 11cbef to 0d94cc.
Now create a new layer called ‘highlight’.
Drag out a white to transparent radial gradient from the top-center of your canvas. Then reduce this layer’s opacity to 25% and change the layer’s blend mode to ‘overlay’.
Apply another highlight layer slightly higher up in your canvas, adding further lighting to your background:
Now download the fractal brush set from the resources for this tutorial.
Create a new layer called ‘fractal brushes’. Apply one of the brushes using a white paintbrush, roughly over the top-center of your canvas.
Then reduce this layer’s opacity to 60% and go to layer>layer mask>reveal all. Use a large, soft, black paintbrush to mask off the edges of your fractal brush mark. This should provide a subtle detail for your background.
Now paste in a large version of your logo’s icon design. Position this in the top-center of your canvas.
Then change this layer’s blend mode to ‘overlay’ and reduce it’s opacity to 35%.
Create a layer mask, and mask off the edges of this logo shape.
Now paste your complete logo into the center of your canvas.
Apply an outer glow blending option:
Outer Glow Settings:
Blend Mode: Overlay
Now apply some centered text underneath your logo area.
Smaller White Text Settings:
Font Face: DejaWeb
Medium Blue Text Settings:
Font Face: DejaWeb
Then add a subtle drop shadow blending option to your text layer, in order to add definition.
Drop Shadow Settings:
Blend Mode: Multiply
Now apply two rounded rectangles (10px radius) underneath your welcome text. Make sure that these rounded rectangles are 7acce8 in color.
Then apply a 1px stroke blending option to each rounded rectangle layer:
Now create a third rounded rectangle to the right of your form. This rounded rectangle will act as your submit button.
Apply a gradient overlay and stroke blending option to this layer.
Gradient Overlay Settings:
Blend Mode: Normal
Gradient Ranging From: 016386 to 0181af
Create a new layer called ‘button highlight’.
Option+click on your submit button layer in your layer’s palette. This will select the shape of your button.
With this selection in place, create a small white-transparent radial gradient. Then change this layer’s blend mode to ‘overlay’ and reduce it’s opacity to 15%. This should create a subtle lighting effect over your submit button.
To finish, just type out some text over your form, and add a basic copyright notice.
And We’re Done!
