#004 – Calculator


The calculator prompt was one one of the hardest designs for me because it is incredibly simple. Looking through what others have shared online who have completed this challenge I saw that there were a lot of similar elements. I mean, it’s a calculator, and you have to stretch to get creative with it.

For the first little while, I figured out the structure that I wanted. A lot of calculators have square or round buttons, but I wanted to have rounded square buttons. What was eating at me was the coloring when finally I discovered after I hid one of the layers that I wanted to give the buttons a shadow feel to them and make it a clean white.
