ExctinctionCSS

I recently became aware of the extinction symbol through Orbital Operations, Warren Ellis’ mailing list.  Something about having a visual moniker, an icon, to represent our distress in the face of the Sixth Mass Extinction resonated with me.  The icon itself is fairly simple, and I thought “hey, I bet I could make that just using CSS.”  So I did.  I leaned heavily on the shapes of CSS from CSS Tricks, though getting the shapes to nest and line up correctly was a bit tricky.  If you’re interested in the code, take a look at the ExtinctionCSS repo on GitHub.  Pull requests welcome!

    Nice – did you actually need this for something or just felt inspired to recreate it with css?
