Vector Workflow Presentation From Artifact

Starting at Daylight in the Spring of 2013, vector icons and graphics were a hot topic for me. I saw opportunities for a new type of responsive ready, crisp, animated graphics and I wanted to adapt the file type to all my projects. The transition for implementing vector graphics into a digital project is a slow one. There is lot to consider and learn about creating, exporting, coding and animating a vector file before tossing up on your website.

Around the time I was searching for answers, I was passed a link to Todd Parker‘s (a partner at the Filament Group) presentation at the Artifact Austin conference in 2014, titled “Leaving Pixels Behind“. I would have loved to attend the actual presentation but even the leftover slide deck serves as a designer and front-end developer’s manual for all things vector. In the last year since I first reviewed the slide deck up to now, I have fully transitioned into adding vector graphics in all the projects I work on. The slide deck however, demonstrates huge opportunities for animation that I have only scratched the surface of. Take a look and get inspired to use more vector art.
