Flat, minimalistic "Submit" button. Code on Github.
9 months ago
The stroke green could be a little more subtile, maybe add a 1px shadow below, the kerning between S and U is a little wider than the rest.
But well, it's flat!
@Dennis Weinhardt It's not a vector file. It's actual rendered HTML, so I don't have full control over the font. Also, it's flat because I believe that anything other than flat on the computer screen is dishonest, and "Good Design is honest." Skeuomorphism, gradience, and shadows are all dishonest in my view, because they give the false illusion of three-dimensional depth on a two-dimensional screen.
Explain this to 3D Designers
@Dennis Weinhardt I think 3D software UI design served it's purpose by helping people transition from hardware UI's to software. Now software interfaces are the standard and everyone knows how to use them. Therefore, I think 3D interfaces are a bridge that has been rendered obsolete. Moreover, 3D GUI's were never Good Design, they have always been a quick fix that has allowed us to get to where we are now.
@Omar El Amri Ok I get it, did not saw that it's a coded button on your Github.
Yes I know what you mean and I think you are right, I support those arguments with a little exception.
'Good Design is honest' says that bad design is dishonest.
When it comes to Advertisement Design etc. dishonesty is unfortunately the successful way you present your products to the world and get customers to buy it because they develop high hopes for it which are based on falsification. That means 'Good Design' in this part of Creative Industry is dishonest and essential for success.
@Dennis Weinhardt It is indeed sad, but we must work to change it. And the times are on our side, because the world is becoming more transparent and dishonesty consequently more apparent.
