2.5D Symbols

Full 3D glass buttons (many tutorials exist for web use) sometimes don’t print very well and can look a little strange over a flat map. They also rarely facilitate integration of a logo, symbol or in this case a flag. To accommodate I have taken the 3D effect techniques and modified them to create a slightly lifted, badge-like, effect suitable for map symbols either on-screen or even printed.
