- [voiceover] Hi, I'm James Williamson, senior author at Lynda.com, and I want to welcome you to CSS, Advanced Typographic Techniques. I'm really excited about this course, because I get to do one of my favorite things, which is to play around and experiment with CSS. We're gonna tackle several projects that take working with typography beyond the basic capabilities of CSS and explores the artistic possibilities of what you can do with type. We're gonna be working with type shadows, animations, transforms, and other CSS properties that can be combined into creative typographic effects.
