Happy Friday! It’s been one heck of a week around here, so I went a bit heavier on the inspiration links for this issue. That’s definitely what I needed today and hopefully it fits your Friday vibe too.

This week’s issue has two neat 3D scenes, a subtle illustration animation, a little bit of Lottie, and a great roundup from Codrops. Lots to explore for your weekend!

If you just need something fun and light right now, I recommend starting with the ghost at the disco and puffer fish breathing exercise links below.

Until next week,

p.s. Replies go straight to my email, and I read them all. Reply and let me know what you’d most like to have covered in a video tutorial.



Steph Jeong site

This one is a fun personal site and portfolio site. It mixes in some subtle parallax effects and some funky unexpected hovers to pack in the personality.


Ghost at the disco
Another lovely and dramatic 3D scene from Anna the Scavenger. It has both ghosts and rainbow disco balls, so you know it’s going to be a fun one.

The painter
I’m a big fan of subtly animated illustrations. I love the extra layer of life and dimension motion can bring to them. This illustration by Ricardo Oliva Alonso is a great example.

Puffer fish breathing exercise
A cute puffer fish animation by Wendy Kong to guide you through a relaxing breathing exercise.

Lottie slider
A springy slider made with Lottie by Chris Gannon.

A 3D scene full of bright colors and fun shapes by Alex Trost. This one was made in Blender, imported to Three.js and animated with GSAP. That’s a pretty impressive chain of tools to work with.

Another mesmerizing 3D piece by Maria Pan. She always posts the most soothing and amazing 3D work.

Sparkles in React
Have you ever wanted to make some text or other elements sparkle? This tutorial shows you how to create a sparkle effect with SVG and React components.


UI interactions and animations roundup #6
Another installment of inspiring interactions and animations from the folks at Codrops.
