Button design

Almost two years ago, Antipixel published a set of minimal buttons to replace the ugly buttons used by most people at that time.
They were modern, tight, fashion… so a lot of people started using them on their sites and many people designed buttons in the same style. I also preferred them over the traditional buttons, but I never placed them on my sites. Why? Because the Antipixel style did not mix with the style of my site. Just as it does not mix with the style of 80% of all sites. Still people use them. I guess because there is nothing better. Of course everybody is free to create their sites as they like, but I won’t put Antipixel buttons on my site. They are soooo 2003…
