For start i will create a new document. The size of your document should be 1100 x 1020 pixels. I will select Paint Bucket Tool, and i will fill my document with the following color #e8e8e8

In the middle of the layout i will create a new shape with Rectangle Tool.

For this shape i will add the following layer styles. Please save this layer style because we will use it later in this tutorial. If you want a huge pack with layer styles i recommend you to download our huge pack with over 18,000 Photoshop Layer styles

On the middle of the layout i will create a red navigation bar.

The same shadows will be used right under the round shape.

In the middle of the layout i will create another white shape with Rounded Rectangle Tool, and as you can see i have used the shadow one more time under the white shape.

I will add some text and Vector icons on the body of the layout.
