Happy Friday! I’m keeping this week’s issue short and sweet since it’s a long weekend around here. We’ve got an extra dose of inspiration in this issue, as well as a helpful read on staggering animations with CSS, and a great talk on creating generative art too.

Until next week,

- Val

p.s. Replies go straight to my email, and I read them all. Reply and let me know what you’d most like to learn about UI animation.




Learning Synths

This is a really fun site to that teaches the basics of synths. It uses both realistic and abstract animations very effectively to help demonstrate the concepts in interactive ways.

Different approaches to creating staggered animations
A collection of various different ways to create staggered CSS animations. There’s an interesting method with custom properties in the list, and none of them use JavaScript. 


Generative machines talk
A video of Matt DesLauriers’ talk at FITC on algorithms and the building blocks for creating generative art. If you’re looking for more on how to make your own generative art, I really enjoyed his related Front End Masters class as well.
