Building Buttons

I spent my day designing 18 buttons for a web site.  I haven’t done work like this in a long time, so it was fun.  There are 6 buttons each with a slightly different looks based on if you are viewing the button, hovering over it, or clicking on it.

Really simple stuff.

But it was fun actually creating something myself again – instead of just managing people who create stuff.

And I think the buttons came out well.  Not spectacular, but very presentable.

And it saved us some time our designers could use in other ways. 

Sometimes it’s fun to do something creative – it’s all to easy to "grow out of" actually creating and move into just "managing".

I hope I’m always able to build a bit of things myself.
