Happy Friday!

If you like animated text effects, you'll really like this week’s issue. We’ve got a variety of animated type, as well as some tips for keeping type animations accessible. And on top of that there’s a great Vue animation example, and a look at some fun ways to bounce elements around the browser.

Until next week,
