Graphic design is such an engrossing topic because it requires an enormous amount of time and practice to learn. This is similar with web development, but coding is often seen as more logical and straightforward. Design has structured guidelines, but it is much more of an art than a science. You should learn these basic guidelines and understand why certain graphics or colors work together before starting to breaking those rules.

Modern CSS trends have blown up so quickly that it can be difficult to keep up with all the new stuff. Online projects which most surprise me involve pure CSS designs for layouts, animations, and icons. There is still plenty of use for icon sprite sheets in the right context. But why not try out modern trends for the users who have upgraded from legacy browsers?

This gallery includes fifty examples of my favorite CSS-based icon designs. Some are animated while others are static interface pieces. These range from general purpose icon sets to character designs created purely within HTML/CSS code. The latter doesn’t have much practical use but it’s definitely a way of showing off your skillset.

There are many Hollywood movies, TV shows, video advertisements, and other projects which often hire concept artists.
