Buttons are a familiar UX tool and an essential part of the
users' journey. Visual cues help people determine whether or
not a button is clickable, so make sure to use proper visual
signifiers on clickable elements so they look and function
Size according to Fitts
Fitts Law is a UX principle that says you should make
buttons big enough that they’re easy to click/tap and keep
the distance short between the action and the action button.
A good rule of thumb from MIT Touch Labs: make your buttons
a minimum of 10mm x 10mm. Make buttons mobile responsive and
resize with percentage widths.
The primary action on a page carries a stronger visual
weight and should be the visually dominant button. Secondary
actions (like Cancel or Go Back) should have less visual
A button is multi-state, therefore, consider the hover/tap
states and active states of the button.
Effective button style is square with no corner radius or
has rounded corners, depending on the site/app brand.
Maintain consistency across controls so your user recognizes
Use standard UI patterns because conventional button
placement improves discoverability. Using a standard layout
will help users understand the purpose of each element -
even if there is a button without other strong visual
signifiers. Combining a standard layout with clean visual
design and ample whitespace is better design.
Call to Action or CTA
UX button microscopy tells users what action will happen if
they click the button. For effective calls-to-action,
minimize word count: Use "Add to Cart" or "Submit" to make
things easy for users.
