If you would like to find out more about artis­tic as­pects of CSS you can check out my talk at one of the front-end con­fer­ences or­gan­ised in Utrecht: Fron­tend United.

In my talk ti­tled ‘Break­ing the norm with cre­ative CSS’, I point out that web de­sign has fallen into a bor­ing state and we all need to look for new sources of in­spi­ra­tion. For me, it was print. In news­pa­pers and fash­ion mag­a­zines I ex­plored vis­ual styles, which I im­me­di­ately wanted to trans­fer into the web browser. In my talk, you will find a cou­ple of ex­am­ples where I’ve used clip-path, shape-out­side, mask-im­age and SVG.

The fu­ture of web graph­ics and CSS as a de­sign lan­guage is bright and it will fi­nally make us less de­pen­dent on im­age ed­i­tors. We’re en­ter­ing the new era with in-browser de­sign­ing. If you don’t want to get left be­hind and you need a fresh breath of cre­ativ­ity di­rectly in the web browser, check out this video. ( youtube.com/ watch?v=y16qp­pUSheE&t=277s)
