Happy Friday! This week went incredibly fast around here. I got to be a part of a few different virtual events and I had a blast getting to chat animation, remote work, and other design topics with everyone.

This week’s issue looks at CSS motion paths and morphing animations from a slightly different perspective along with a fun scroll animation and a CSS solar system too.

If you just need something fun and light right now, I’d suggest starting with the bubble tape text and solar CSS links from below.

Stay safe,
