The visuals for our applications typically start out as vector mockups in Adobe Illustrator. So when we started working on our first iPhone app, we went looking for vector UI elements we could utilize. There are good Photoshop resources and even some nice OmniGraffle iPhone UI files, but we couldn’t find any vector based files.
Therefore, we took it upon ourselves to recreate the iPhone’s UI elements. We are making our vector files available today for free.
You can download the file using the link below.
If you prefer Photoshop, check out Teehan+Lax’s iPhone GUI PSD. If OmniGraffle is more your speed, Patrick Crowley’s Ultimate iPhone Stencil is excellent.
Previews of some of the UI elements we recreated are presented below. (You’ll need to download the file to see everything in its full vector glory.)
