Globe Button for Your Website

Hungry for the new design elements for your website? I have a new one for you. Hope it will be useful in your new design.

Let’s begin! Make a new document with the resolution 500×300 for this tutorial and fill this canvas with white color. Then select the Rounded Rectangle Tool (Radius: 30 px) and draw the next shape using the color of #d61d23.

Now, time to bring reflection to the button. Duplicate current layer using Ctrl+J, then create a new one and flip it with copied layer to get all layer styles in one layer. After that flip it vertical with Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical as on my picture below:

We are done with the button. Now, move to the next step. I think it will looks better when we will put some design elements on it. To do this get out the Ellipse Tool and create rounded shape as on my picture below using white color:

Time to bring some picture to our rounded design element. Find some picture of the Earth on the Google Images or use mine or find it somewhere. Open it and reduce a little bit, then place the picture as shown below.

Good, then make it black and white using Image > Adjustments > Desaturate (Ctrl+Shift+U) and change layer mode to Overlay for this layer:

And the last one thing that we need to do. To finish off the tutorial let’s add some text. Get out the Horizontal Type Tool and write out something with white color like on my picture below.

In the above image I’ve used Segoe UI as my font of choice, and I’ve used white color. Actually, it is commercial font, but if you don’t have it, you can easily find a good alternative, for example, Arial Black. After that apply the following layer style to this layer:
Drop Shadow

Now, we have something like this.
