Creative Text Effects with CSS
Mandy Michael | @mandy_kerr (

Interesting and impactful text is often deemed a “print only option”. But we can have those effects now with real web text. So let's have some fun! I'll show you how to make effects with accessible, searchable, and selectable text and we’ll explore a variety of techniques including pseudo elements, clip-path, blend modes, gradients, transforms, variable fonts and more to create interesting headings, layouts and even emojis.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget the power of CSS but there is a lot you can do with a little creativity.
