You can do some pretty crazy stuff with SVGs. It’s possible for developers to code graphics onto a page without any image files just using the SVG & canvas feature.
An area that has seen a good bit of experimentation recently is utilizing CSS to fully design or enhance artwork. For example, designers have tried their hand at recreating popular characters with impressive results.
Illustrations can bring a highly-artistic style to any website. Whether hand-drawn or created digitally, these images can help us tell a story and convey ideas. By itself, a great illustration can be pretty powerful stuff. But, with a little magic, we can give them an even greater impact.
The ability to morph one shape into another fascinates me. I can still remember the first time I saw it in action. It was Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video – way back in 1991. There, a diverse collection of people were constantly morphing into one another. It was all pretty amazing, especially considering the amount of processing power (or lack thereof) that was available at the time.
You can do some amazing things with SVG masks. This technique has been around for years but only recently made its way into mainstream web development.
