    please help me with a creative idea for a button


    i don't know where my creativity had gone and I am in need of somebody else's help.
    take a look at this site:
    www.orbusinc.com/index.html - this is the way the home page is now.
    what i need to do is create a "new from orbus" button.
    my attempts can be viewd at:
    www.orbusinc.com/index_1.html
    www.orbusinc.com/index_2.html
    www.orbusinc.com/index_3.html
    www.orbusinc.com/index_4.html
    www.orbusinc.com/index_5.html

    with 1 I was trying to bring some color into the page outside of the current color scheme,**but no matter what I have tried - I never liked how things looked. do**you have a suggestion?
    2 - is the same idea as 1, but with a color from the page's color scheme. i am not sure wether I like it any or not - I am afraid it is too blurry and hard on the eyes.
    3 - is an attempt to continue with the page's theme,**but I truly think it doesn't work at all, since I am**already specifying a dimension/perspective for the page with the pre-existing shadows/lighting effects from the "order today" button, which the third look is the exact opposite of.
    4 - is another try with the same theme. I like it much better then number 3 and consider putting the text into one line. My problem with it? it IS the same theme, and I think I need something more different and exciting.
    5 - generally nice, but boring.
    The images are not tweaked to perfetion (like for example, I am**not sure wether to have or not to have the bevel effect on the text), but I believe it will depend on a design I choose for that button.

    Please help me! I am out of ideas!

    slavkoder, thanks for replying


    i really feel that the buttons should not be the same, so that their effect will not cancel one another. I did like my "order now' button, but at the time it was created it was the only one on the page and I absolutely did not realse that it will be such a pain to add another button to that page, so .. I have changed the concept a little. what do you think of http://www.orbusinc.com/index6.html
