You, Me and SVG


Icon fonts! CSS-only illustrations! High-resolution GIF animations! Today's web designers still regularly and enthusiastically employ these techniques... yet they're all a better fit for SVG, a powerful vector image format that's already old enough to drive a car.

Join Cloud Four's Lead Designer Tyler Sticka for an impassioned introduction to your new favorite image format: What it is, how it works, and why it's so awesome.


Tyler Sticka leads the Design Practice at Cloud Four, where he helps vanquish complex responsive design challenges for clients like Walmart Labs while blogging about SVG and other web ephemera. He's also a fan of side projects, co-founding Backabit (makers of iOS games like Ramps and Lotsa Blocks) and launching Colorpeek (and its accompanying Chrome extension) in his spare time. He complains about mail apps on Twitter as @tylersticka.
