20 Code Snippets for Interactive Buttons

Can you imagine a website without buttons? I bet you can’t. And it is not surprising since these tiny, mostly rectangular-shaped objects much like navigation or copyright information are one of the fundamental details of any UI. Not only do they make links look more weighty, appealing and pushy, but they also help to increase conversion rates and make user experience handier and more intuitive. These CTAs (aka Call-to-Action) have the power to win over potential clients and give a boost to your business.

It is vital to pay particular attention to shape, coloring, space, typography, and of course, the behavior of a button to open up its possibilities. While the first four characteristics as a rule rely on the general theme, the last one varies depending on the goal that you need to achieve. For example, you can insert a spinner to brighten up seconds of waiting; or, you can assign some eye-catching effects that will grab the attention right away. Adding a bit of a dynamic maximizes the impact. Today’s collection includes 20 code snippets for engaging and attractive effects that were created to enrich buttons and make the user experience more enjoyable.
