I made a Codepen

Posted July 7, 2014 in Links, Projects


See the Pen prIFw by Lara Schenck (@laras126) on CodePen.

A notlaura.com realign is officially underway (didn’t I just do one?). Don’t expect anything too soon, but the above is a little preview. Plus I’ve been listening to Codepen Radio lately and, well, time to make a pen!

In addition to typography and gridding, I’ve been learning to do more with SVG and JS animations. I recently discovered Velocity.js – so awesome. There’s a great tutorial about the UI kit on Smashing Magazine, and a nice walk through on CSS-Tricks. I’m still learning, so don’t judge the above too harshly!

SVG-wise, the Pen above just uses images but I used SVG sprites with Grunt on a recent WP development project for Greenpoint Pictures (with PNG fallbacks to boot!), and will certainly be using them in the realign.
