im going to work on something now in photoshop/CAD program to show what I will be able to do with it, but you guys will have to let me know what you WANT.
i can either re-create the style of buttons as best that i can in photoshop, or use JPG/PNGS of actual buttons from a phone like done in the iphone app.
if i make the buttons in photoshop, I can give them the 'pressed' effect
OK, im confused.. that screen shot of the app, and i dont know if pay phones are/were like that, but there is no Q or Z on it o.O
here is a VERY preliminary idea for this dialpad..
this was done in a CAD program, so not much flexibility. I will create the Shadow effect to make the buttons look 3Dish as shown in the pic below..
the gray/gray gradient would be replaced with an actual brushed steel texture.
i would also add some type of effect to give the buttons the concave look in the middle..
what im looking for is what people think of the layout. to get it to work well with everything as it is, i will be using the SAME size pngs with transparent left/right sides which explains the orientation of the buttons/text/
