CSS is one of the most im­por­tant tools of any web de­signer, given that it adds the de­sign styling to pages, but it has be­come far more im­por­tant than that. Hav­ing the abil­ity to put an­i­ma­tion on pages and re­act to in­ter­ac­tions is the cen­tral part of cre­at­ing a com­pelling user ex­pe­ri­ence. CSS now per­forms many tasks that pre­vi­ously needed Javascript, such as off-screen menus, drop downs, light­boxes, ac­cor­dians and par­al­lax scrolling. This makes your site more per­for­mant. Stay­ing on top of trends and new fea­tures is es­sen­tial to ex­pand­ing your de­sign skills to­wards mak­ing award-win­ning web­sites. Check out the ex­am­ples op­po­site.
