Short study in Photoshop creating a glossy set of video or music player controls. My aim was to create something chunky that has depth, something you would have fun with when pressing the over sized buttons. I started out by drawing all of the shapes as vectors in Illustrator, then added blending layer effects in Photoshop.
Next stage would be to design sub-controls and a way to display time elapsed / remaining. Would be cool to customize a YouTube chrome-less player with these controls.
