CSS tricks to add some creativity and flair to your website

Here are a few fun CSS tricks that you can use to add some creativity and flair to your website or web application:

Text Shadow: You can add a shadow to text by using the text-shadow property. For example:

h1 {

  text-shadow: 2px 2px #ff0000;


This will create a red shadow 2 pixels to the right and 2 pixels down from the text.

Gradient Background: You can create a gradient background using CSS by setting the background-image property to a linear or radial gradient. For example:

body {

  background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #ff0000, #0000ff);


This will create a gradient that goes from red to blue from top to bottom.

Animations: CSS animations allow you to add movement and interactivity to your website. You can use the @keyframes rule to define an animation and then apply it to an element with the animation property. For example:

@keyframes example {

  from {

    transform: translateX(0);


  to {

    transform: translateX(100px);



.element {

  animation: example 2s linear;


This will make the .element move horizontally 100 pixels to the right over the course of 2 seconds using a linear easing.

Transform: The transform property allows you to scale, rotate, and translate elements. For example:

.element {

  transform: rotate(45deg);


This will rotate the .element 45 degrees clockwise.

These are just a few of the many creative things you can do with CSS. I encourage you to explore more and see what kind of effects you can create!
