The Literal Button
by Martin Fuhrer

I was given the challenge to design a button which reflects some aspect of my personality. I decided to incorporate several components of my personality as a university student (and, no, I do not suffer from multiple personality disorder).

This exercise served as a warm-up for CPSC 581, and allowed me to learn about the Windows COM architecture and how to build ActiveX controls in Visual Basic.

Feel free to browse through my work.
