Ha. I just finished a graphic design side gig where each image had to be super reductive and also in grayscale. I found a slight drop shadow came in handy to add a touch of depth even though the phrase 'drop shadow' was considered a dirty word when I went to school. I cringed at first use, but you know what? If it works, it works. And that's all that matters.

I never realized how difficult it was to design good web buttons until I tried. They aren't perfect, but I was pretty happy with our latest iteration of hubski buttons. It took some research.
