Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been getting excited about variable fonts lately. People are making so many neat things with them, and animating them too! Mark Frömberg’s demos below are some great examples of their potential.

If you need a quick burst of inspiration to kick off your weekend, I suggest starting with the Giant Ant motion graphics piece and the Codrops diagonal slide show demo. Both show off some wonderful design details with their animation while also covering completely different ground.

Until next week,

p.s. Replies go straight to my email and I read them all. I’d love to hear about what you’re working on.



Enjoy #dzy

How to create pure CSS illustrations and animate them
Agathe Cocco digs into her process for creating CSS illustrations and animating them. (You’ve probably seen lots of her work on CodePen and in previous issues of this newsletter!) She also covers some of the reason why you might want to try CSS illustration yourself.
