Engraved Text!

While working on the Inquivesta website, I decided that I wanted to get rid of as many of the elements of the original template as possible, and replace them with my own stuff. Among them were the buttons. I tried a few things. The first idea was the Mandelbrot set, in a pillow sort of bevel:

mandelbrot1     mandelbrot2     mandelbrot3

But then I didn’t like the end result the next day I opened the page. So after a lot of work, I finally came up with this:




Yes! ENGRAVED TEXT! Drool on it!

Photoshop is impossible. I can’t believe it was first released in a floppy.

    1. Okay, that surely was awesome. And the site design of webdesignerwall.com is cool too. Yeah, it’s a nice light and quick way to get a gradient, but the thing I had there wasn’t actually a gradient, if you’ll notice carefully. It was an inner shadow, which gives you the feeling that the text is sunk. It takes a single click (okay, maybe two clicks) in Photoshop. But yeah, the CSS gradient is a useful trick to learn.
