35 cool CSS Buttons – with animations! Thumbnail
Published on 8. June 2019Last updated on 22. April 2021

Buttons are not only good for usability, but also an extremely important design element for your website. For this reason, here is a collection of the best CSS buttons!


Whether thick and bold on your homepage or small and discreet in the footer, buttons are a very important design element for the user flow on your website. For a company website, a more discreet design is often used, whereas creative industries use more eye-catching and “weird” CSS buttons. So that all industries are equally served, you will find many different styles and combinations here.

I – and many other web developers/designers – also set a high value on animations for Hover or Focus, which is why all of the following buttons bring along nice animations. But now we start directly!
