Featured Article

The Sidebar - Every Layout

This is one of my favourite layouts from the new book that I co-authored with Heydon. There’s a lot of flexbox goodness to get your teeth stuck into.

A reminder: you can still grab 20% discount on Every Layout by using the code PICCALILLI_PAL for being a subscriber of this newsletter.

Fancy

Cher Ami - Agency Site

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

This website is wild and incredibly creative. There’s a lot going on and some very odd interactions.

The transition states are outrageously good, too!


Lemonade - Campaign Site

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

This is a beautiful site. I normally hate scroll-based stuff, but it’s really nicely done.

The colours, typefaces and illustration are pure lushness.


Webclerks Conference Site

This website is stunning. A hell of a good lineup of speakers too!


Select menu interaction

These are really cool. I’m not 100% convinced that they are accessible, but it is nice to see semantic elements used on a demo like this.

Nice work by Aaron.

Animation

Deep sea (Chrome only)

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

Another stunning piece of work by yuanchuan. I could sit and watch this for hours.

Fun

Bee Right Back

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

This is a lovely little loader by Gabriele.

Resources

CSS Filters

This is brilliant, by Valentin. It’s such a handy resource for playing with and learning about CSS filters, which are incredibly powerful.
