Well, this is simply delightful.

A really great overview of using
prefers-reduced-motion to tone down CSS animations.
This post was written by James Craig, and I’m going to take this opportunity to say a big “thank you!” to James for all the amazing accessibility work he has been doing at Apple through the years. The guy’s a goddamn hero!

A really interesting and well-executed portfolio site, utterly let down by the tone of this demeaning and insulting piece of copy:
WARNING: Do not proceed if you suffer from vertigo or if you find experimental interfaces offensive.
(Pssst: copy is also interface.)

I love the way Guillaume Kurkdjian uses animation here to demonstrate how these gadgets from the ’90s would work.

I’ve noticed a few nice examples of motion design on the web lately.
If you want to see some swishy animations triggered by navigation, the waaark websites has them a-plenty. Personally I find the scroll-triggered animations on internal pages too much to take (I have yet to find an example of scrolljacking that doesn’t infuriate me). But the homepage illustrations have some lovely subtle movement.
When it comes to subtlety in animation, my favourite example comes from Charlotte. She recently refactored the homepage of the website for the Leading Design conference. It originally featured one big background image. Switching over to SVG saved a lot of bandwidth. But what I really love is that the shapes in the background are now moving …ever so gently.
It’s like gazing at a slow-motion lava lamp of geometry.

When I got to work, I had a sneak peak of a site that Graham has been working on. If everything goes according to plan, it will launch tomorrow. It’s a gorgeous piece of work with some very subtle bits of animation.
At the end of the day, I sat in on the weekly roundtable design crit. Richard finished it by soliciting ideas for animation effects on another upcoming site launch.

A great article by Hannah, focusing on the Long Web—it isn’t about the quantity of data you’re publishing; it’s the quality. This builds nicely on the article I linked to recently about digital scarcity.

Aaron should definitely skyblog more often if this is the result.

This is sooo nifty: Chloe’s obsessive Summer music visualisation is a lesson in responsive design and progressive enhancement. It’s also pretty fascinating.

Matt is wearing his musical heart on the sleeve of the web.
Unqualified and unabashedly personal remarks on those bits of sound that make it all worthwhile.

A beautiful call to arms against engineerism in design. Software cries out for love.

There appears to be a form of synesthesia where people "hear" motion. Watch this video (repeatedly) to test your own sensory perception.
