I’ll stop myself from saying this InDesign push button effect is as easy as, well…pushing a button, but it’s not far from it. It’s really just made from a few circles with effects like Gradient Feather and Bevel and Emboss. The key as with many effects is paying attention to the highlights and shadows to create a sense of 3D.
And once you’ve made one of these buttons, you can quickly make all the variations you’d ever need just by changing the text and background color. Make yourself a whole big panel of buttons that would make George Jetson proud.
