Futuristic Button Design.
Futuristic Button Design Tutorial using Photoshop

Step 1:

Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 450×350 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with black color. Now make a new layer set and name it ‘Button’. Then in a new layer draw a large circle with #003637 color shade and 194 x 194 px dimensions.

Step 2:

Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow, Inner Glow and Gradient Overlay blending options to your dark green circle layer.

Step 5:

Duplicate your ‘Button’ layer set then go to Layer > Merge Layer Set, this should turn the duplicated layer set into a regular layer. Now re size the circle design layer by 70% through Edit > Transform > Scale and position it on the center of the logo design.

Step 7:

Place both circle design layers from step five and six inside the original ‘Button’ layer set. Then highlight that layer set on the Layers palette and go to Layer > Merge Layer Set. You should now have one layer with a unique circle design.

Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow, Inner Glow and Gradient Overlay blending options to your unique circle design layer.
