Genius Marketing: Artsy Animated GIFs Show Beer-Making Process You all went gaga when we featured the animated-GIF stylings of Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg earlier this year, so we're pleased to see that the duo is expanding their horizons with a new project.

Beck and Burg used their "cinemagraph" technique to document the process of making Dogfish Head's new strawberry-and-honey-flavored Tweason'ale in a series of what they describe as "journalistic" visual vignettes.

Creating Non-Rectangular Layouts with CSS Shapes Today we can create all kinds of shapes with CSS using CSS transforms, but all these shapes do not affect the flow of the content inside or around them. That is, if you create a triangle or a trapezoid with CSS, for example, the shape created does not define or affect the way the text inside it flows, or the way inline text around it does. With the introduction of CSS Shapes into the web, wrapping content in custom non-rectangular shapes, and recreating print designs and layouts on the web becomes a piece of cake! In this article we're going to go over the basics of declaring shapes, and creating some simple layouts using these new CSS technologies.

Patterns are similar to those images that are indefinitely repeated either horizontally or vertically. That makes a lot more sense today where usability is concerned, especially in responsive design.
