The company and product is pretty technical but they want a user-friendly and modern look to the button.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The audience will be IT or network administrators setting up equipment so the image needs to be clean and essentially no-frills. However, because IT stuff is usually pretty ugly, I still want it to look a little bubbly and fun. Just fun within boundaries.
The button is made up of 6 hot spots (see attached image.) One hot spot for each:
- Pan left
- Pan right
- Pan up
- Pan down
- Zoom in
- Zoom out
No text can be on the image (although + and - are pretty standard in the industry for zoom in and zoom out.)
On the attached image, the arrows denote the left/right/up/down panning buttons and the middle zone is the zoom in/out. The overall form needs to stay about the same (4 arrows placed like in the image with a center divided into two parts) but the look and feel can vary as long as the "hot spots" are obvious to a user.
Remember, this is for IT/technical folks and is business-oriented so don't get overly fanciful or dreamy.
