I’ve used CSS to create squares and rectangles (obviously), I’ve also created lozenges and circles, even triangles in CSS. I’ve seen hexagons and pentagons, but never the infinity symbol! It’s really cool, there’s also some nice stars and hearts!
I’ve taken the Premium Pixels Image Gallery Design (PSD) and turned it into HTML, as a means of testing what I can do with CSS3. I’m pretty pleased with what I’ve been able to accomplish using CSS rather than images.
I’m a big fan of Premium Pixels, by Orman Clark and love his little freebies that he gives away every now and then. What annoys me about them is that they’re just designs, I want it to work! For ages I’ve sat there going “I wish someone would code these up!”. Can you see where I’m going with this one? For ages I’ve also wanted to play with CSS3 and see how far I could push it. Cue eureka! moment…
I’m usually very quick to shout “Flash is dead” when a designer asks if a site will be in Flash, so let me explain why. Flash isn’t dead, not by a long stretch, but its habitat is being encroached upon. I’ve been creating Flash sites for over 10 years now, so I’ve seen the rise and fall of the use of Flash in websites.
