Okay, this is just plain cool. You know that the hamburger icon is here to stay, at least for a while. While this may make some web designers cringe, these animations may soften the blow just a little. There’s 3 different animations, which are are clean and smooth.
Animated Text Fills
Codrops have done it again, with some awesome experimental text fills for the web. Imagine animating your text with some gorgeous effects. This will really get your visitors attention. Keep in mind that this is experimental, and may not work in all browsers.
Responsive CSS Frameworks You’ll Love
Everyone has their own framework. it turns out that you’re not stuck with just Foundation 5 & Boostrap. This is a list of some of the best CSS frameworks out there.
An awesome collection of SVG loaders for your sites & apps. In my opinion, your site or app should be so fast that you don’t need a loading animation, but these are still really cool.

If you don’t know about flexbox, you should! Wow, is it powerful, and this interactive tour shows you step by step what each setting and property does. Talk about making your life easier!
Wow, what a concept! We are now at the point where stuff like this can be done on the web. I am excited, because this opens the door for flexibility. No longer will we have to try to cram a super-long logo in a place where there’s not enough room.
I am sharing these, not just because we have the same last name, but because they are actually funny. We all need to laugh a little now and then.
Drag and Drop Interaction Ideas
What a great idea! Imagine bein and drop items on the front end, enabling you to sort items and rearrange them.
Imagine having icons with more detail at different screen sizes and resolutions. This is how to get started making your own.
Flowtype.js is a great script for scaling your text size, based on the element width.

Downloading never looked so good. Click the button and while the download is in progress, watch the animation.

This is a slick experiment using SVG and CSS. This looks great, and I’d like to see it used in more websites.
