Claymorphism on 2022🎁 (CSS only)

Hey There, Hope this new year✨ give you a fabulous moments. There are some trends for every year like Skeuomorphism ➡️ Neumorphism ➡️Glassmorphism ➡️Now, The brand new trend is Claymorphism🎉.

Due to accessibility issues, Some trends can't be hero of the year in real-time😥. Uh, Don't worry guys Claymorphism didn't make any accessibility issues.

Why Claymorphism🤔

Really getting bored with flat designs and world excited for changing UI to 3D. From 2022, we introduce that 3D feel in web world. Sounds amazing right✨ and we can introduce this Claymorphism from pages to atom components. I care to save developer time and let's get this show on the road🎉.

Claymorphism made by 4 styles

  1. Light, pastel, and vivid colors
  2. Big rounded corners
  3. Double inner shadow
  4. Outer shadow

In-depth on box-shadow

box-shadow is the main guy for that magical shadow effect. So, we need aware of that.

Specify a single box-shadow using:

  • Two, three, or four values. If only two values are given, they are interpreted as offset-x and offset-y values. If a third value is given, it is interpreted as a blur-radius. If a fourth value is given, it is interpreted as a spread- radius.

To specify multiple shadows, provide a comma-separated list of shadows.

  • Optionally, the inset keyword.
  • Optionally, a color value.

Note: Claymorphism is made up of inner shadow and outer shadow

How do we create inner shadows

It’s actually effortless😍. We need to add special value inset before our shadow. This will inform our browser that this particular shadow is an inner shadow. By default, we create outer shadows. Below code snippet, illustrate the claymorphism made by one outer shadow and at least two inner shadows.

box-shadow: 24px 24px 48px rgba(174, 210, 236, 0.4),
    inset 12px 12px 24px #e7f2f9, inset -24px -24px 48px #b8d8ee;

Hi! Is there an actual CSS way to achieve the image in the header? That image has curved edges, in contrast to what is achieved here, which has flat edges. It makes quite a difference. It felt a bit like falling for a clickbait!
