Happy Friday! I just returned home from speaking at the very lovely An Event Apart Orlando. Good times were had by all.

We’ve got a variety of uses of 3D animation in this week’s issue. Along with some inspiration for menus and loaders. If you’re a fan of Dan Shiffman or p5.js, you might be especially interested in the Nature of Code ported to Three.js link below.

Until next week,

- Val

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

A light and floaty scrolling feel paired with page transitions that serve as a mini intermission. The pacing of the animations and the airiness of the layout encourage you to slow down and absorb the photography of each project. The custom cursor icons are a nice touch too.
