Happy Friday! I’m finishing up an action-packed week in San Francisco before heading to my first talk of the year at An Event Apart Seattle. My talk is on making motion inclusive and I’m super excited for this first run of it.

This week’s issue has a few examples of clip-path animation going on in the various tutorials and demos. There’s also a collection of great cutting edge demos, and a deep dive into what makes microinteractions effective.

Until next week,

- Val


p.s. Replies go straight to my email, and I read them all. Tell me about what you’re planning to learn in 2019.



Patterns day hovers

Patterns Day hovers

This week we’re taking a little break from the highly animated sites to appreciate the stylish hover effect on the Patterns Day site. They’re powered by clip-path and CSS variables to create a little something fun for each speaker’s photo.
