Let's code! Pushable Buttons
You all know buttons, because buttons are everywhere. We mostly take them for granted. They are there to direct us to somewhere else and God protect a button that doesn't do exactly that. We rarely give them a second thought, despite the fact that the appearance of a button is as much a design choice as any other element; a button can make or break a design.
Small advice: Simple (or rather: easy to navigate) is the new black. We established that buttons are part of that equation. It is my experience that buttons in journal designs aren't that highly sought after. People want them for their function, and even then rarely use them. Myself, I love to make buttons for one simple reason: It's a tonnage of fun.

Hover and active states

1. What we'll be doing
This CSS button.
Kidding. We'll make a spiff one. I'll elaborate. We will mak

Artist | Student | Varied
United States
I'm a teenager from a tiny town in Missouri with big dreams. I'm interested in fine and digital art, knifemaking, paleoartistry, and a bunch if other things, including biology, poetry, and creative writing. I'm LDS, and proud to live what I know is true and right. I'm sorta new to the art world, but I'm getting there! Wish me luck!
