Sadly, you won’t find many inspiring examples of websites which use CSS Shapes. That doesn’t mean that inspiration isn’t out there — you just have to look a little further afield at advertising, magazine, and poster design.
I’ve been thinking about my own web designs lately, and realising how often they can lack variation in the shape combinations I use. This is a great introduction in to using better art direction for the web, CSS shapes isn’t a technology I’m overly familiar with, perhaps its time to do some more learning.

This was my last book of 2017. I started it at the end of November and kept wanting to try things out so it took me a lot longer to finish than it should’ve. It’s a book I’ll be returning to over and over in the next few months while I keep trying out the new CSS techniques in my work. Looking forward to the more powerful and extensive layout options that are now becoming available to us. The web has started to look very same‑y in the last 12–18 months, mainly I believe, due to designers trying to make it easier to build responsive websites. I firmly believe some of the new CSS specs will allow that to change and for designers to start pushing boundaries again.
A great trick for keeping typography in responsive design without widows and orphans.
