Transparency in Web Design: Examples and How-Tos

We have seen transparency in web design more or less forever, but it has been limited to static .jpg images in the past. Since Internet Explorer has become compatible with .png images and the advent of CSS3 and HTML5, transparency in web design is much more flexible.

Transparency has not exactly trended, and it is not predicted to trend anytime soon, probably because it can definitely be overused and it can be fairly tricky to get right, but when it is right, it can add depth and character to a design, so perhaps we will see it trending along with flat design in the future because the next logical step in flat design is ways to add depth whilst keeping it flat. So today we are showcasing a selection of great examples of transparency in web design. We are also including a list of articles and tutorials all about transparency in web design.
