Whether you’re entrepreneur designing a website for your small business or experienced web designer – you might feel inclined going the creative path and forget about the usability. It’s important to remember that it really doesn’t make a difference how innovative website buttons looks like – if user doesn’t understand it’s a button, there will be no clicks. It sounds simple, but it’s one of those things that’s quite easy to forget.
The website button ideas collection which is below contains some buttons that are experimental and not straightforward. It means that for some users it might take an extra effort to understand whether the object they see is a button. So again, it’s all about your users and their background. You’re designing for them.
For example, the first item in our website button ideas collection would be perfect for a portfolio of a web design freelancer, because his or her target audience might be graphic designers or art directors from other agencies. And people in these positions would probably appreciate this approach to the buttons. Would this work in a corporate website? You know the answer.
In any case, you can make any predictions you want, but if you want to be sure – test your design prototypes with real people. You will see whether they can understand your website buttons and call to actions clearly. Our favourite user testing website is ironically called User Testing, I’d suggest you to check it out.
If you still haven’t skipped and reading this – enjoy the website button ideas collection, hope it will help to crack your creative block.
