Image Creation in CSS and HTML

6th July 2010

A really interesting article this. Over at the excellent, Jeffrey Zeldman discusses the use of CSS and HTML to create web graphics without the need for Photoshop or Illustrator. The site links to some quite brilliant examples of graphics created entirely using CSS, check out Louis Harboe’s iOS icons and Jeff Batterson’s iPhone. Zeldman argues that “no company will ever create “the modern day equivalent of Illustrator and PageMaker for CSS, HTML5 and JavaScript.”” which can only effectively be created by the human hand.

Personally I feel software companies need to adapt to the changes in creating web content, or find that their products are no longer relevant. I’m already reading about a reluctance to upgrade existing software to the latest revisions because of falling confidence in the products available. While some are excellent, others are buggy and contain unusable features put in place, it seems, only to justify an upgrade. On the other side of the coin, as a designer, I need a visual tool to intuitively transfer my ideas to the screen and feel typing would be at odds to a designers natural way of expression.

It’s a great piece and I thoroughly recommend subscribing to Zeldman’s blog. To read the full article visit:
