Triple Panel Reveal Slideshow

Today we’d like to show you a little slideshow design with a “triple panel” layout. The infinite slideshow shows a preview of the next and previous slide on both sides of the page. When navigating we use a reveal effect for all three images and animate the titles. The animations are powered by TweenMa...

Full Image Reveal Effect

Today we’d like to share a simple fullscreen image reveal effect with you. The idea is to have an inital thumbnails layout at the bottom of the page and then animate the items when we click them. A covering element comes sliding in and when it moves out, the fullscreen image view is shown behind. We are using Twe...

Grid Layout with Motion Hover Effect and Content Preview

Today we’d like to share a little grid layout with you. We use CSS Grid and a playful hover effect on the grid items which are composed of different wildly placed elements. When an item is clicked, we slide in a content preview overlay and animate the grid items out and the preview items in. For the animations we...

Ideas for Proximity Feedback with Progressive Hover Effects

We’re exploring a progressive hover effect which triggers not just when we are hovering an element but progressively, when we come close to it.

Particle Effects for Buttons

WebGL Distortion Hover Effects

Today we’d like to share a little hover effect library with you. The effect goes as follows: when hovering an image, we’ll use a displacement image to transition to another image. Using different displacement images, we can create a variety of looks. The main idea behind this little library is to recreate a...

Expanding Grid Menu

Today we’d like to share a little menu animation with you. The idea is inspired by an effect that can be seen in this video, right at the beginning: a couple of differently sized boxes slide out and fill the screen. We thought this might be a nice idea applied to a menu using CSS Grid. The demo is kindly sponsor...

Glitch Effect Slideshow

After playing with an experimental CSS Glitch Effect for images and text, one of the first questions we got was “how can this be used in a slideshow”? The animations we used for the glitch effect were tuned to run infinitely, so the keyframes were adjusted to that. In a slideshow we have a different scenari...
