Badge button builder

I came across Luca Zappa’s clever button maker by way of some popularity list somewhere. I was going to dismiss it quickly, but then I thought: maybe I’ll try to make just one. Once you start playing around with it, it’s hard to stop. This is a nice little tool for making those ubiquitous badge buttons you see all over the place.

The badges are exactly 80×15 pixels, and they use Jason Kottke’s Silkscreen font.

Almost as good as playing around with the badge maker was learning about Luca Zappa on his 49 “100 Things About Me” page. He is not related to Frank Zappa.
