This is wicked slick. I’ve been working more and more with SVG over the past year or so for a number of reasons. We’re all wise to the numerous reasons SVG rocks, and this demo/walkthrough is a great illustration of that.
This, however, is one of those effects that we might get slammed with everywhere we look because it’s so slick. What I’m most excited about is dissecting it and applying it to unique assets in client work. I’m impressed.
