How to Make Neumorphic UI buttons in Figma

Hi, everyone in this video we're gonna look at these buttons down here. OK. They're new morphic. OK. Is the term used to describe this kind of like pushed out U I style. It's really easy to make enigma. They look pretty, they have some accessibility problems, but let's jump in and talk about it now. Enigma. All right. Before we get started, what is new morphism or new morphism design? It's this look OK? It is this, yeah, it's this look, it looks beautiful and it kind of looks like, you know, the buttons push through fabric or gel or oh, it looks beautiful. I rushed out and added it to lots of designs when I kind of first discovered it. It's basically just a bunch of drop shadows and I'll show you how to make it in a sec. The trouble is is that there's a lot of people who hate on it and I'm kind of one of them now as well. Why it's accessibility? It's people that are using your device in low light or a bad screen or they've got visual impediments. OK? They're not gonna see your button, ...

see that one there to sign up, it's very hard to see very low contrast, OK? It's outside of the scope of this course. But as a UX designer, you should be looking at accessibility and especially for this U I design and fig looking at something like contrast ratios. OK? So write that down and be that something that you go and look into after this fig a course. And basically what I do is it's pretty easy after a little while to know what is gonna work and what's not like if I squint my eyes at these buttons, kind of look through my eyelashes, they disappear. I can't even tell where they are. OK. There's just not like that's my rudimentary accessibility test. It's not infallible but squinting your eyes is like, yep, that disappeared, all of that inter interface disappeared. You need some really strong, maybe just, you know, strong enough kind of difference between things buttons and text. So you can't do it, you can do it. I'm going to show you kind of a balanced approach here in fig A. So there is a lot of different kind of like flavors of that new morphism. You can go and Google like new morphism and look in Google images and find people's tutorials on them. I'll give you the basic way because basically all it is is I've got this from leftover from um another tutorial. I got this button. It could be anything it could be text button. U I we're gonna use this thing. OK. So I've got nothing applied to it. All I want to do is basically, it's a bunch of drop shadows. So under effects, we know that we can add more than one drop shadow. So I got my first one here and basically there's two to the bottom, right and two to the top left. OK? And these two to the bottom, right are black and these two to the top left are white. Now, the trouble with using white on the top left is that, that matches the background color. So whatever you do, whether it's a dark mode version or a kind of a light mode like we're doing the background can't be solid black or white. So I'm gonna go, you are going to be like the bigger the contrast, the kind of better if you just do a little hint, let's see how this goes. Let's wing that one. So the background's a bit darker. So I'm gonna do two drop shadows down here. So I'm gonna go off maybe I'll do two big ones. So this, these numbers will have to adjust depending on what you're doing. I'm gonna drag that one out to maybe there, that one out to maybe about there blur it. So it's nice and blurry. So there's one kind of big waft blurry black one, I'm gonna add another one. So there's my big waf black one down there. This one here is going to be a tighter one. So maybe one and one and the blur is going to be maybe two. You can see it kind of adds that kind of depth to it. We kind of did that before two drop shadows. Now we need to add two more that one. It adds it to the top. It's hard to know you can't rename these ones. So it gets a little tricky is you need to a B white. Um, and you need it to be negative. So we need to go up to that, that way you go away. We've already got a sense for it. Right. I'm gonna do just a little one. So what minus two minus two, turn the blur down to two kind of getting there, right? We'll add another one. It's at the top, go to white, it's going to white 100% by default. Ok. We're gonna turn that down in a second and this one here is gonna be up to the left again, up to the top and maybe I'll turn the blur up quite a bit. Ok? It's kind of cool. We might have to. That's kind of, it is my tutorial and I'm going to maybe lower the opacity of this and it's about that background contrast as well. So let's go a little bit darker. Oh, now it looks worse. Ok. So it's a balance. It's a balance. Let me uh lower the opacity of these ones. 20% this one here down to maybe 40%. I'm kind of guessing at these just looking at the document there. I think that top big waty one, which is the waf one. I don't know why I use the word waf one. I got that from Sarah Parkinson. She used to say waft lots do that. Does it look new morphic? Anyway? I like it because there's still the contrast. OK. I've still got the contrast enough, but I've also added a little bit of that. Now you can do it on. Now, let me quickly show you it looks different on different ones. So those settings that I just showed you, it's still like one big shadow, one small shadow. The two down here are black, the two up there are white. But if I change the background color, let's go, let's do a bad one. OK? So as in the contrast ratios, it's gonna look cool, but the contrast ratio is not going to be probably high enough. So let's do that. You are going to be the same color as the background. Here we go and it's kind of shows up. This doesn't work. We're gonna have to go a lot lower on these. So maybe 5010. Yeah, five. You see, it will depend on what you're doing. What colors there's not a specific setting. So if you're following somebody's tutor on yours is not looking as amazing and numeric, you might have to adjust things to kind of fit. I don't know. What do you think if you are interested in this Google numeric design fig? A there's a bunch of stuff in the community. OK? That you will be able to just go and download and start using. It's new Morphic. OK? And you can just copy and paste them and start using them and just have a little look if you're like, oh, that looks cool. See how they've done it. Like Dan just kind of hacked his way through it. He saw there. But if you really want to get into like where's another good one? I don't know the line. Oh There's a bunch of different ones. Find the look that you like kind of make a note of what effects were applied and kind of how big and how long they were extended, but just be careful that you are, you know, there are times where it is just nice to make nice stuff. But if you want this to be usable in a kind of a practical real world sense that button there, it is not going to pass any sort of accessibility test and just make it hard for your users. But if you're still excited by it, like I was when I first saw it go nuts. Put new morphism everywhere, get it out of your system. Like learning the lens flare when you first learn Photoshop, put it on everything. But eventually you'll realize not everything needs a lens flare. All right. That is it. I will see you in the next video.
