Creating my logo animation

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

Cassie not only has a stunning new website, but she’s also teaching us how she’s building one of the coolest elements of it: her animated logo.

It’s not a short read, but if you want to get into SVG-based animation, this is a great way to do it.

Fancy permalink

Smooth scrolling effects

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

This is a good ol’ silky Codrops demo from the legend, Mary Lou. It’s smooth as butter.

I don’t think I’ve linked to Codrops on here yet, which is criminal, frankly.

Henry Desroches - Portfolio

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

Not only is Henry one of the nicest people that we have in this little community, they're also ridiculously talented.

Go ahead and give them a follow on twitter. You won't regret it.

9elements - Agency site

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

This site is stunning. That’s all I’ll say because there is so much going on to make your eyes smile.

Just go and click around and enjoy the incredible aesthetic and the fun dark mode toggle on the blog.

CSS only running horse

⚠️ Motion warning ⚠️

Holy Horse! This is incredible, by Steve. Make sure you click the horse to see the working parts in slow motion.

Fun permalink

Pure CSS Gritty

Adam’s checking in again with another mind-blowing demo. This is 100% CSS—even the cursor tracking.

We need Gritty more than ever, too.

Sponsor permalink

This week’s sponsor is Clarity

I love Clarity and I’m so happy that they wanted to sponsor this issue. Their support means a heck of a lot.

Clarity is a design systems community conference.

They elevate our skills through multi-faceted inclusion, empathy, technology, creativity, and collaboration.

Thank you permalink
