  1. Accept & Deny buttons

    Leave a Comment

    Using Adobe Fireworks I have made 2 free sets of buttons. While making them I was thinking of Assasins Creed (awesome game) so I thought of an assassination and a rescue button. There are many different uses for these buttons in web design projects such as ‘Accept & Deny’, ‘Approve & Cancel’, etc.

    These are 100% vector so they are infinitely re-sizable, I have also used the free tiling diagonal patterns that I previously posted on my blog.

    These buttons are handmade by me and of course free to use in all types of projects, a link back to my site is not mandatory but really would be HUGELY appreciated.

    Thanks very much and enjoy!!

     

    P.S – FONTS

    I have used a font called ‘Gotham’ to create the buttons as you see them, you do not need it to use the buttons you can edit it but damn is it a good font.

  2. Mac keyboard icon

    Here’s a free vector version of the exact Apple Mac keyboard I use. Yeah it’s bulky… but I love it! Made entirely in Adobe Fireworks too.

    Of course this is a free resource and I’m sure you can find a way of getting it into one of your web design projects ;)

    P.S – Fonts

    In case you were wondering, the fonts I have used are ‘Lucida Grande’ & ‘Myriad Pro’. Both of these should be preinstalled with both Macintosh and Windows operating systems. (Correct me if I’m wrong)

     

  5. Free tooltips & notifications

    A free collection of notifications, popups and tooltips

    To maximise the success of your user interface you must have tooltips, notifications and/or popups somewhere. Well, I think so anyway. Everything about the modern-age is focused on getting your attention, notifications such as the little red numbers when you get a new comment on Facebook.

    A free collection of notifications, popups and tooltips

    Good notification design, I think, should feel obvious and you should immediately understand it. I have chosen a range of obvious designs and created them in Adobe Fireworks. One of them is the Facebook ‘friend request sent’ tooltip – I take no credit for the design of this.

    Feel free to use this on you web design projects and interfaces.

    Enjoy.

  6. Popular social buttons

    Free collection of popular and well-known buttons

    First of all, I can take no credit for the design of these buttons. The designers are those wonderful people at Facebook, Twitter, Google and Ookla. I have simply recreated the buttons and icons using Adobe Fireworks.

    This collection of buttons includes the start test button from Ookla SpeedTest app on the iPhone, some of the main buttons from Facebook & Twitter and also the 3 main buttons from Google. They can be used for design work, on apps and on web design projects, maybe even print.

    Download this pack of buttons for free. Probably not suitable for commercial use so I’d keep it private for mockups etc.

    Enjoy.
