Happy Friday! It’s hard to believe that it’s Friday already. Time is going by at such a strange pace right now, that’s for sure.

Today’s issue has an animated microinteraction that totally made my week, a neat clip-path effect, details on the WAAPI and even another Animal Crossing reference for good measure.

If you just need something fun and light right now, I recommend starting with the Isabelle's day off and hi links below.

Stay safe,

Libby app playback speed

I haven’t featured a microinteraction in this space in a few issues, so when I came across this lovely little audio speed change interaction this week, I had to share it. This is from the Libby audio book/library app. It’s both a nice design detail and nicely timed as you interact with it to change your playback speed.

On one hand this is a small detail, but it’s also a very important one. Changing the playback speed is a common task when using an audio book player which makes it the perfect place for a more detailed interaction.


Another high-energy type animation from Mat Voice. He’s been posting a bunch of great ones on Instagram again the past few days too.
