Amazing Illustration Work of Mercedes Bazan
Amazing Illustration Work of Mercedes Bazan

abduzeedoNov 15, 2019

I recently came back from a trip to Japan, it was my first time there and I was blown away by the culture, especially the visuals. I was familiar with the aesthetics from video-games and mangas, however seeing some of the contrasts of peaceful and minimal to chaotic and colorful is incredible in person. The reason I’m bringing this up is because I was reading this interview with James White and he mentioned Mercedes Bazan as an illustrator he admires. James is one of my favorite people so I had to check out and of course he was right, again. So here we are, featuring the amazing work of Mercedes Bazan

The New Features of GSAP 3

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tympanus/~3/ylk06b17RKA/

In this article we will explore many of the new features available from GSAP 3. The GreenSock animation library is a JavaScript library many front-end developers turn to because it can be easy to get started and you can create powerful animations with a lot of control. Now with GSAP 3 getting started with GreenSock is even easier.

Some of the new features we will cover in this article are:

GreenSock’s smaller file size
A Simplified API which offers a newer syntax
Defaults in timelines
Easier to use with build tools and bundlers
Advanced stagger everywhere!
Keyframes
MotionPath and MotionPath plugin
use of Relative “>” and “<” position prefix in place of labels in Timelines
The new “effects” extensibility
Utility methods

…and more!

GreenSock’s smaller file size

First and foremost the GreenSock library is now even smaller. It still packs all the amazing features I love, plus more (50+ more to be exact). But it is now about half the size! We will see some of the reasons below like the new simplified API but at its core GSAP was completely rebuilt as modern ES modules.

A Simplified API

With the new version of GreenSock we no longer have to decide whether we want to use TweenMax, TweenLite, TimelineMax, or TimelineLite. Now, everything is in a single simplified API so instead of code that looks like this:

TweenMax.to(‘.box’, 1, {
scale: 0.5,
y: 20,
ease: Elastic.easeOut.config( 1, 0.3)
})

We can write this instead:

gsap.to(“.box1”,{
duration: 1,
scale: 0.5,
y: 20 // or you can now write translateY: 20,
ease: “elastic(1, 0.3)”,
});

Creating Timelines is easier too. Instead of using new TimelineMax() or new TimelineLite() to create a timeline, you now just use gsap.timeline() (simpler for chaining).

Here is an example of the first syntax change. Note that the old syntax still works in GSAP 3 for backward compatibility. According to GreenSock, most legacy code still works great.

See the Pen GreenSock New vs Old syntax by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

Duration

Previously, the animation’s duration was defined as its own parameter directly after the target element. Like this:

TweenMax.to(‘.box’, 1, {})

With the new version, duration is defined in the same vars object as the rest of the properties you animate and therefore is more explicit.

gsap.to(“.box”,{
duration: 2,
});

This adds several benefits such as improved readability. After working with and teaching GSAP for a while now, I agree that having an explicit duration property is helpful for anyone new to GreenSock and those of us who are more experienced. This isn’t the only thing the new API improves though. The other benefits will become more obvious when we look at defaults in timelines and the new Keyframes.

Defaults in timelines

This new feature of GSAP is really wonderful for anyone who creates longer animations with gsap.timeline(). In the past when I would create long animations I would have to add the same properties like ease, duration, and more to each element I was animating in a timeline. Now with defaults I can define default properties that will be used for all elements that are animated unless I specify otherwise. This can greatly decrease the amount of code you are writing for each timeline animation.

Let’s take a look at an example:

This Pen shows a couple of the new features in GSAP 3 but for now we will focus on the defaults property.

See the Pen Quidditch motionPath by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

I use defaults in a few places in this pen but one timeline in particular shows off its power. At the beginning of this timeline I set defaults for the duration, ease, yoyo, repeat, and the autoAlpha property. Now instead of writing the same properties for each tween I can write it one time.

const moving = () => {
let tl = new gsap.timeline({
defaults: {
duration: .02,
ease: “back(1.4)”,
yoyo: true,
repeat: 1,
autoAlpha: 1
}
})
tl.to(‘.wing1’,{})
.to(‘.wing2’,{})
.to(‘.wing3’,{})

return tl;
}

Without the defaults my code for this timeline would look like this:

const moving = () => {
let tl = gsap.timeline()

tl.to(‘.wing1’,{
duration: .02,
ease: “back(1.4)”,
yoyo: true,
repeat: 1,
autoAlpha: 1
})
.to(‘.wing2’,{
duration: .02,
ease: “back(1.4)”,
yoyo: true,
repeat: 1,
autoAlpha: 1
})
.to(‘.wing3’,{
duration: .02,
ease: “back(1.4)”,
yoyo: true,
repeat: 1,
autoAlpha: 1
})

return tl;
}

That is around a 10 line difference in code!

Use of Relative > and < position prefix in place of labels in Timelines

This is another cool feature to help with your timeline animations. Typically when creating a timeline I create labels that I then use to add delays or set the position of my Tweens.

As an example I would use tl.add() to add a label then add it to my tween along with the amount of delay I want to use relative to that label.

The way I previously used labels would look something like this:

gsap.timeline()
.add(“s”)
.to(“.box1″, { … }, “s”)
.to(“.box2″, { … }, “s”)
.to(“.box3″, { … }, “s+=0.8″)
.to(“.box4”, { … }, “s+=0.8”);

See an example here.

With > and < you no longer need to add a label.

From the GreenSock docs:

“Think of them like pointers – “” points to the end (of the most recently-added animation).”

“<" references the most recently-added animation's START time
“>” references the most recently-added animation’s END time

So now a timeline could look more like this:

gsap.timeline()
.to(“.box1″, { … })
.to(“.box2″, { … }, “<")
.to(“.box3", { … }, "<0.8")
.to(“.box4", { … }, "<”);

And you can offset things with numbers like I do in this example:

See the Pen MotionPath GreenSock v3 by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

Stagger all the things

Previously in GSAP to stagger animations you had to define it at the beginning of a tween with either a staggerTo(), staggerFrom(), or staggerFromTo() method. In GSAP 3 this is no longer the case. You can simply define your stagger in the vars object like this:

tl.to(“.needle”,{
scale: 1,
delay:0.5,
stagger: 0.5 //simple stagger of 0.5 seconds
},”start+=1″)

…or for a more advanced stagger you can add extra properties like this:

tl.to(“.needle”,{
scale: 1,
delay:0.5,
stagger: {
amount: 0.5, // the total amount of time (in seconds) that gets split up among all the staggers.
from: “center” // the position in the array from which the stagger will emanate
}
},”start+=1″)

This animation uses staggers in several places. like the needles. Check out all the staggers in this pen:

See the Pen Cute Cactus stagger by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark


Easier to use with build tools and bundlers

When I have worked on Vue or React projects in the past working with GreenSock could be a little bit tricky depending on the features I wanted to use.

For example in this Codesandbox I had to import in TweenMax, TimelineMax and any ease that I wanted to use.

import { TweenMax, TimelineMax, Elastic, Back} from “gsap”;

Now with GSAP 3 my import looks like this:

import gsap from “gsap”;

You no longer have to add named imports for each feature since they are now in one simplified API. You may still need to import extra plugins for special animation features like morphing, scrollTo, motion paths, etc.

Keyframes

If you have ever worked with CSS animations then keyframes will be familiar to you.

So what are keyframes for in GreenSock?

In the past if you wanted to animate the same set of targets to different states sequentially (like “move over, then up, then spin”), you would need to create a new tween for each part of the sequence. The new keyframes feature lets us do that in one Tween!

With This property you can pass an array of keyframes in the same vars objects where you typically define properties to animate and the animations will be nicely sequenced. You can also add delays that will either add gaps (positive delay) or overlaps (negative delay).

Check out this example to see the keyframes syntax and the use of delays to overlap and add gaps in the animation.

See the Pen GreenSock Keyframes by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

MotionPath and MotionPath helper plugin

One of the features I am most excited about is MotionPathPlugin and the MotionPathHelper. In the past I used MorphSVGPlugin.pathDataToBezier to animate objects along a path. Here is an example of that plugin:

See the Pen MorphSVGPlugin.pathDataToBezier with StaggerTo and Timeline by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

But the MotionPathPlugin makes it even easier to animate objects along a path. You can create a path for your elements in two ways:

With an SVG path you create
Or with manual points you define in your JavaScript

The previous Quidditch pen I shared uses MotionPathPlugin in several places. First you need to register it like this:

//register the plugin
gsap.registerPlugin(MotionPathPlugin);

Note: the MotionPathHelper plugin is a premium feature of GreenSock and is available to Club GreenSock members but you can try it out for free on CodePen.

I used an SVG editor to create the paths in the Quidditch animation and then I was able to tweak them directly in the browser with the MotionPathHelper! The code needed to add the MotionPathHelper is this

MotionPathHelper.create(element)

Screen Shot 2019-11-13 at 4.52.09 PM

I then clicked “COPY MOTION PATH” and saved the results in variables that get passed to my animation(s).

Paths created with the MotionPathPlugin helper
const path = “M-493.14983,-113.51116 C-380.07417,-87.16916 -266.9985,-60.82716 -153.92283,-34.48516 -12.11783,-77.91982 129.68717,-121.35449 271.49217,-164.78916 203.45853,-70.96417 186.21594,-72.24109 90.84294,-69.64709 “,

Example of a path passed in to animation
const hover = (rider, path) => {
let tl = new gsap.timeline();
tl.to(rider, {
duration: 1,
ease: “rider”,
motionPath:{
path: path,
}
})
return tl
}

In this timeline I set up arguments for the rider and the path so I could make it reusable. I add which rider and which path I want the rider to follow in my master timeline.

.add(hover(“#cho”, path3),’start+=0.1′)
.add(hover(“#harry”, path4),’start+=0.1′)

If you want to see the paths and play around with the helper plugin you can uncomment the code at the bottom of the JavaScript file in this pen:

See the Pen Quidditch motionPath by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

Or, in this pen you can check out the path the wand is animating on:

See the Pen MotionPath GreenSock v3 by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

Effects

According the the GreenSock Docs:

Effects make it easy for anyone to author custom animation code wrapped in a function (which accepts targets and a config object) and then associate it with a specific name so that it can be called anytime with new targets and configurations

So if you create and register an effect you reuse it throughout your codebase.

In this example I created a simple effect that makes the target “grow”. I create the effect once and can now apply it to any element I want to animate. In this case I apply it to all the elements with the class “.box”

See the Pen GreenSock Effects by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

Utility methods

Lastly, I’ll cover the utility methods which I have yet to explore extensively but they are touted as a way to help save you time and accomplish various tasks that are common with animation.

For example, you can feed any two similarly-typed values (numbers, colors, complex strings, arrays, even multi-property objects) into the gsap.utils.interpolate() method along with a progress value between 0 and 1 (where 0.5 is halfway) and it’ll return the interpolated value accordingly. Or select a random() value within an array or within a specific range, optionally snapping to whatever increment you want.

Most of the 15 utility methods that can be used separately, combined, or plugged directly into animations. Check out the docs for details.

Below I set up one simple example using the distribute() utility which:

Distributes an amount across the elements in an array according to various configuration options. Internally, it’s what advanced staggers use, but you can apply it for any value. It essentially assigns values based on the element’s position in the array (or in a grid)

See the Pen GreenSock Utility Methods by Christina Gorton (@cgorton) on CodePen.dark

For an even more impressive example check out Craig Roblewsky’s pen that uses the distribute() and wrap() utility methods along with several other GSAP 3 features like MotionPathPlugin:

See the Pen MotionPath Distribute GSAP 3.0 by Craig Roblewsky (@PointC) on CodePen.dark

That wraps up the features we wanted to cover in this article. For the full list of changes and features check out this page and the GreenSock docs. If you’d like to know what old v2 code isn’t compatible with v3, see GreenSock’s list. But there’s not much as GSAP 3 is surprisingly backward-compatible given all the improvements and changes.

10 Beautifully Clean Websites with Minimalist Designs

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/1stwebdesigner/~3/pGsA_SmH7iY/

Minimalism is always in. The universally appealing, clean web design trend has dominated the internet for many years, and will certainly continue for many years to come. While there’s plenty of bright, flashy, experimental web design emerging as well, nothing beats simplistic, clean, and beautiful.

Looking for some inspiration for your own designs? We’ve collected these elegant, minimalistic web designs for you today. Take a look at these websites and their own spins on the trend.

Pitch

Example of Pitch

Pitch opens with a unique full screen intro that scrolls out and transitions into the rest of the site content. It uses clean, white design as a base but builds on it with plenty of colorful and lively animations. This is a great example of what you can do with a simple white base and a little creativity.

Hello Monday

Example of Hello Monday

Great animation has the power to make a simple website vivid and memorable. The intro animation alone will capture your eye, and all the beautiful transitions and hover effects round it out perfectly. This is the perfect portfolio for a branding company: one that leaves a lasting impact.

OpenAI

Example of OpenAI

Clean doesn’t have to mean boring. OpenAI uses vivid images and a gorgeous gradient background while still being efficient and elegant. Scrolling transitions to white to give you a break from the rich colors, and blog pages blend a simple background with interactive elements and bright images to keep things fresh.

Outline

Example of Outline

Check out this website if you’re aiming for minimalism and elegance balanced against vivid imagery. It introduces itself with a simple animated header, then drops you into softly scrolling sliders and bold full screen design. Product pages are intensely colorful with crisp HD pictures, and that same elegant aesthetic.

StoryCode

Example of StoryCode

A little innovation is all it takes to make a simple, clean UI interesting. StoryCode opens with a cool scroll animation that pulls away to reveal their branding tagline. The three-color palette of orange, black, and white provides consistency and contrast in this design.

Jamie McLellan

Example of Jamie McLellan

You’ll definitely remember this designer’s name, as it hovers boldly behind his project images. Click a picture to see its project page, and again to zoom in closer. The whole site is in black and white barring images, but the unique UI does more than enough to make it appealing.

Okalpha

Example of Okalpha

Minimalism doesn’t just mean a white background or a subtle two-toned palette. Okalpha goes all out, starting out with just a pop of color before plunging right into the bright, cartoonish hues. This definitely isn’t an easy aesthetic to pull off, but this site does it by consistently using only three bright colors to balance the intensity.

Good On You

Example of Good On You

If you’re going for a more sophisticated, muted design, look here for inspiration. This fashion website uses pale browns and blues, with each carefully picked image having just the right intensity of color to accent them.

Mozilla Dot Design

Example of Mozilla Dot Design

Clean design is all about the UI, and Mozilla Dot Design does it right with a bold and image-focused appearance. Its palette is striking and multi-toned, but it uses it to great effect on every single page.

Bold

Example of Bold

Bold uses fresh and professional design to create a stunning aesthetic. The site opens to black and white tones, with a crisp video that also begins in a monochromatic palette. The middle of the page is filled with bright and beautiful colors, before transitioning back into black and white as it reaches the footer. It’s an awesome effect and great for branding.

A Fresh Take on Minimalism

Minimalism is definitely a style can be overdone, but with a unique little twist, you can breathe life into this popular trend. Take note of how each of these websites include a fresh new spin on things. A pop of color, an intriguing intro, a beautiful scrolling animation – add your own touch to it, and your site will stand out.

How TypeScript Makes You a Better JavaScript Developer

Original Source: https://www.sitepoint.com/typescript-better-javascript-developer/?utm_source=rss

TypeScript

What do Airbnb, Google, Lyft and Asana have in common? They’ve all migrated several codebases to TypeScript.

Whether it is eating healthier, exercising, or sleeping more, our humans love self-improvement. The same applies to our careers. If someone shared tips for improving as a programmer, your ears would perk.

In this article, the goal is to be that someone. We know TypeScript will make you a better JavaScript developer for several reasons. You’ll feel confident when writing code. Fewer errors will appear in your production code. It will be easier to refactor code. You’ll write fewer tests (yay!). And overall, you’ll have a better coding experience in your editor.

What Even Is TypeScript?

TypeScript is a compiled language. You write TypeScript and it compiles to JavaScript. Essentially, you’re writing JavaScript, but with a type system. JavaScript developers should have a seamless transition because the languages are the same, except for a few quirks.

Here’s a basic example of a function in both JavaScript and TypeScript:

function helloFromSitePoint(name) {
return `Hello, ${name} from SitePoint!`
}

function helloFromSitePoint(name: string) {
return `Hello, ${name} from SitePoint!`
}

Notice how the two are almost identical. The difference is the type annotation on the “name” parameter in TypeScript. This tells the compiler, “Hey, make sure when someone calls this function, they only pass in a string.” We won’t go into much depth but this example should illustrate the bare minimal of TypeScript.

How Will TypeScript Make Me Better?

TypeScript will improve your skills as a JavaScript developer by:

giving you more confidence,
catching errors before they hit production,
making it easier to refactor code,
saving you time from writing tests,
providing you with a better coding experience.

Let’s explore each of these a bit deeper.

Elegant Branding Work for Red Circle by Oddone
Elegant Branding Work for Red Circle by Oddone

abduzeedoNov 13, 2019

My old friend Roger Oddone has been quiet for a long time and now I understand why, he’s been working on some killer branding projects and the latest one is for RedCircle, a platform designed to empower the podcaster community to grow, earn money and be heard through free podcast hosting and a cross-promotional marketplace.

Oddone and brand strategist, Caren Williams, worked together with the San Francisco-based startup to define its strategic brand platform and visual identity system. Drawing inspiration from a microphone, sound waves and a red recording icon, the visual identity was designed to be flexible and to convey a sense of sophistication, contemporaneity, and boldness.​​​​​​​

Premium Flat Business Icon Sets

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/1stwebdesigner/~3/rNd7ju_dnCM/
