The owner of this site wanted a “big red button” as a feature on the homepage. This was a particular challenge to make the button bold but not totally overwhelm the page content. The button is a rollover sprite image that looks like the button is being depressed when hovered over. The button text is actual text and not part of the image. By making the main text on either side of the button bold, it balances out the button. All icons are themed to match the look of the site, as well as the forum.
