A gorgeous button featuring a slick dropdown menu in a wonderfully organised PSD…adjective crazy!

Comments & Discussion

  1. These are slick, and very sexy, I’ll give you that. Original? Not so much. That’s not necessarily a bad thing – they’re minimalistic and adaptable to virtually any theme, but here’s a challenge, Liam. The next dropdown menu or button set you create, try and make it a standout. See if it’s possible to create something gorgeous and original but still in keeping with your style. I want to see a dropdown menu I’ve never seen before – that’s the kind of stuff that will keep me coming back to PD.

    Great work with this site, though. I’m a huge fan of the daily updates, quality content and beautifully minimalistic layout. Keep it coming.

    • Thanks for commenting Sam.

      Ask and you shall receive, I’ll see what I can come up with ;)

      While it’s nice you’re providing feedback, you’re not defining your reasons; why doesn’t it standout? What other drop down menus have you seen that are consistent with LIam’s design? Why isn’t it original?

      When you get rolling in the professional art world, even when you’re pushing in school later, try to describe the reasons why you do or don’t like something in detail. That’s the only way we’ll help each other be become better artists- and I’ve been lucky enough to work with Art Directors who were kind enough to give me the same constructive criticism:).

      On that note, it’s darn near impossible to make any design wholly original – especially in the world of UI elements. You’re restricted in the paradigm of what’s a drop down menu, and how it’s associated with UX and the influence/limitations of operating systems.

      I like what you did here Liam – I feel like I could click on the main navigation, and watch the sub navigation slide down like a fresh iPhone application. The piece feels a little along the lines of the plastic iOS style, but it’s subtle enough that I actually like it better then the majority of the hard gloss iOS graphics. I know you’re shooting for a minimalist website, but it’d be rad to see some of these design elements mixed in this site!

    • how can i use it ? I download it . but I dont know how to use it ? please any help contact me on my mail

  2. Wow these are incredible. I can’t figure out how to create the inner shadow tint that you did though. I set all my attributes for the inner shadow the same as yours, but when I change it to white it doesn’t really show up. If you give me a tip on how to do it I would be much obliged. Great work.

    • You may have to change the blend mode :)

  3. Love it! Don’t know how to turn this into working CSS though but it’s gonna be a nice challenge. ;)
    Thanks!

  4. Very simple, easy to use, Minimalistic, Professional designs. Great work!

  5. I liked this menu but had no idea how to implement this in my website. I managed to load the psd into Adobe and view the different layers. However, unable to change the text, see how the links work or implement it. Maybe you could have added some basic instruction for people who are new to this.
