Progress button styles

I’ve done many web-based ajax request forms in my career. Regardless of the project, I generally see the same processing design aesthetic: the submit button flips to a disabled state and a loading animation, usually a circular spinner, pops up. So designer and developer Mary Lou asks, why not try something different with the button itself? The results are pretty cool. Some ideas are admittedly a bit too clever, but it’s fun to see such creativity in action.
