CSS3 Showcase: Illustration with Code

With CSS3, there are a lot of things to be excited about. When I read CSS3 For Web Designers, my first thought was that it could be an amazing illustrator’s toolkit. Here are two awesome sites that go beyond using CSS3 for box shadows and rounded corners:

BeerCamp SXSW 2010

SImple and brilliant, isn’t it? This site uses CSS to make lollipop trees and a block of buildings.

For the Record

I saw this in a .net showcase and instantly had to check it out. It is basically a series of infographics that illustrates the variety and depth of one person’s record collection. The content is interesting and the design is beautiful. The page tells a story without any extraneous nonsense. Love.

link Dribbble - Lan Truong

This designer is one of my favorite dribbblers. I love dribbble! I’m a “spectator” there, which means I can lurk on the site and look at all the beautiful work. Someday, maybe, I’ll have the guts (and hopefully, a worthy portfolio) to make myself a prospect.

I can’t help but appreciate a good, clean (and responsive!) site like this one.
