A practical guide to using SVGs on the web

A session at Breaking Borders: Shaping the Web

Tuesday 16th June, 2015

8:40pm to 9:00pm (GMT)

We live in the age of pixels — many many pixels. As designers and developers of the web, pixels are at times both our friends and our enemies. We want everything to look sharp and nice for anyone who uses any of the websites we work on, but need to keep file sizes down for performance. There is pretty much only one way to go with icons, logos and illustrations on the web — SVGs. Scalable Vector Graphics can look crisp at all screen resolutions, they can have super small file sizes, and they can be easily edited and modified. Sounds great, but what’s the best way to actually implement them? Let’s take a look at some different scenarios and see which option is best, with a few extra tips and tricks along the way.
