Step 2

Before you start the work on the design, let’s set up a simple grid that will make it easier to align elements.

Focus on the Design panel in the right sidebar and click the Layout Grid section to add a grid to your design.

Click the blue icon to access the grid settings. Select Columns from the drop-down menu and then enter the settings shown in the following image.

2. How to Create Buttons for the Onboard Screen

Step 1

Select the Rectangle tool (R) from your toolbar and create a 70 x 30 px shape. Set the Corner Radius to 5 and then click the Fill color wheel and change it to #F5F5FF.

Switch to the Move tool (V) and move your rounded rectangle as shown in the second image. Alternatively, you can enter 16 in the X box and 742 in the Y box to numerically move your shape in the desired location.

Step 2

Pick the Text tool (T) from your toolbar, click inside your frame and focus on the Text section from the Design panel.

Select the Lato font, set the style to SemiBold and the size to 12. Increase the letter spacing to 10% and change the text color to #32323C, and then type in the "SKIP" piece of text. Press the Esc key to switch to the Move tool and place this text as shown in the second image.

Step 3

Use the Move tool to select your rounded rectangle along with that "SKIP" piece of text. Hold down the Alt key and drag a copy of your selections to the right, as shown in the following image. Also holding down the Shift key while dragging will constrain the movement of the copy to a single direction.

Focus on these copies, select the text and change its color to white (#FFFFFF), and then select the rounded rectangle and change its color to #FF5F5F. Because you’re about to use this pink color a lot of times let’s save it as a color style so you can easily access it later.

Keep focusing on the Fill section and click the quadruple dot icon to open the Color Styles flyout panel. Click the Create Style button (+), name your new color style Pink, and then click the Create style button.

Step 4

Select the Rectangle tool (R) and hold down the Shift key while dragging to easily create a 10 px square. Fill this new shape with #F5F5FF and set the Corner Radius to 1.

Switch to the Move tool (V) and place your rounded square as shown in the second image.

Step 5

Drag two copies of your rounded square as shown in the following images. One to the right and the other to the left. Make sure that you’re leaving a 20 px gap between these shapes.
