Howdy, CSS Mates 👋
It’s been a hectic couple of weeks for me with lots of stuff being released out into the wild. I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all of the nice things they say about the projects I do. It really motivates me!
This issue features starter kits, Spongebob, pinboards, coupons and more relative units.
If you’re enjoying reading this newsletter as much as I’m enjoying creating it, please share it with your pals. It’ll be really appreciated if you do.

I’ve released a little starter kit called Hylia which is designed to help folks who don’t have time to build their own blog, have a nice looking blog to publish on, rather than using Medium or Facebook.

We have just published another rudiment on Every Layout, so we thought you, a subscriber to this newsletter, might want to check it out.
The new rudiment is called “Units”, where we dive into relative units and how they help mediate the dynamic proportions of our layouts.
This is such a clever trick by the trick-master himself, Scott.
It's so smart to use a resize handle of a
<textarea> to create this effect.
Olivia is at it again with this stunning work.
One of my favourite aspects of grid is that it gives developers power to build print-style layouts and this is a great demo of that.
This is great, by HIC. I’m a long-time Spongebob fan, so this was always going to be up my alley.
Christina is ridiculously talented and I’ve long been a huge fan of her work. This little illustration/animation is goddamn adorable.
Tatiana is probably my favourite designer and a very good pal, so it’s great to see her making some cool as heck CSS Grid art like this that I can share on here.
Knowing her, this is only the start of even more exciting stuff.

I want to spend more time working on stuff that benefits the web community, but I also need to feed my family, so I've created a Patreon!
I’d really appreciate your support so I can help folks learn the web platform. The Patreon will hopefully reduce the amount of time I work on client projects and increase the amount of time I can spend working on projects like this one.
Any support will be appreciated and you can select as little as $1 per month!
Thank you permalink
That’s all, folks
I’m also taking a short break from writing tutorials, so I’m looking to feature your work. If you have written a handy CSS utility, CSS trick or tutorial, you can submit a link over at https://submissions.piccalil.li ➡
Until the next issue, take it easy 🙂
