I had the honour to write a post over at smashing magazine, where I take a closer look at SVG filters and the phantastic possibilties they offer for us designers to create astonishing type effects. So head over to Smashing Magazine and read my article there: The SVG filter, and why it is awesome.


Here are local copies of my demos from the article:

Outlined and filled with pattern

Extruded and filled with pattern

Extruded and illuminated

Used, grungy look with the help of fractal filters

feTurbulence to achieve a spilled water effect

Some “pop-arty” color effects

Sketchy style

Basic techniques
