PSDTUTS is a site I regularly visit for ideas, inspiration, and Photoshop tutorials. Today (somewhat out of the blue) they had a great post featuring 40+ Creative, Courageous, and Campy buttons. The author, Sean Hodge, says this: "Buttons can be visually interesting, as the collection below illustrates. They can be clever and conceptual. Many of the examples below pull textures from various sources. One of the more conceptual examples ties together cassette tape designs and button textures. And in the case of the "void" button you have the message and stark emptiness of minimal design unified. There are numerous ways to get creative with your button designs, below are just a few."
I'm slightly jealous of these, simply because I love buttons but have never had a chance to make any of my own. I think one day when I'm teaching at a university in some cool city, I'll hold a summer class called Button Making.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Okay, so I had a lot of favorites.
