Happy Friday! I’m writing this week’s issue from Pittsburgh for the first time in a while. The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of travel, so it’s nice to be home for a bit.

I’ve updated my slides on Notist for both of my recent talks: Purpose and Style at From Business to Buttons in Stockholm, and Making Motion Inclusive at An Event Apart Boston. Two very different talks at two very great events.

Earlier this week I found myself doing some late night SVG coding to help out a friend, and I stumbled upon this little SVG utility from Lea Verou for converting SVG paths to be all relative or all absolute. It’s a super helpful for those times you need to edit SVG paths to make them a little easier to animate. I’m glad she made it and shared it with us all!

Until next week,

- Val

p.s. Replies go straight to my email, and I read them all. Tell me about what you’re working on.



Lusion studio #dzy

Lusion #dzy

There are some really impressive glowing light and particle effects going on in this site. Most of them play through or follow you as you scroll to change the scene as you move through the content. This one will definitely get your fan revving too. 

Also, today seems like a good time for a reminder about the #dzy hashtag. It serves as a motion warning for links that might be problematic for folks with motion sensitivities.

A walk cycle with likes

Like cycle
A lovely looping animation that might hit a little too close to home. It’s by Chris Gannon and made with some clever use of GSAP’s timelines and custom easing.

A rocket flying through CSS space

A simple, yet stylish, hover effect for links with background gradients and transitions from Claudia Romano.

Animating CSS Grid rows and columns
