FormSlider : Logical Slide Form Pages with jQuery

FormSlider : Logical Slide Form Pages with jQuery

This jquery.formslider integrates a modified Flexslider with logical slide pages that can have features and behaviors provided by plugins.

The main goal is to have different actions triggered depending on what type the actual slide page is. You can stop going forward when a formula is invalid for example.

The Library is very small, performance optimized, full responsive and touch capable. You can easily write you own plugins and implement custom slide behavior.

Crossroads Slideshow with CSS & TweenMax

Crossroads Slideshow with CSS & TweenMax

Today we’d like to share an experimental slideshow with you. The main idea is to show three slides of a slideshow that is slightly rotated. The titles of each slide, which serve as a decorative element, overlay the images and are rotated in an opposing angle. This creates an interesting look, especially when animated. When clicking on one of the lateral slides, the whole thing moves, and when we click on the middle slide, we move everything up and reveal a content area.The animations are powered by TweenMax.

jQuery slideshow plugin with subtle Ken Burns effect : Subtle-Slideshow

A jQuery slideshow plugin (haha yes another one) with a subtle Ken Burns effect using CSS3 animations. It has no controls or anything fancy like that, just some tasteful animation and transition effects, which you can customize. The slides can contain anything you want (images, videos, etc.), but images are best supported. On this demo page you can see an example of what it can look like.

Microsite Concept with Rotating Background

Microsite Concept with Rotating Background

An animated microsite concept with rotating background made with CSS3, jQuery and GSAP’s TweenMax. A microsite is an individual web page or small cluster of web pages that act as a separate entity for a brand. A microsite typically lives on its own domain, but some exist as a subdomain. Companies have different reasons for investing in microsites. Microsites have the advantage of opening wide out-of-the-box thinking and strategy and can be used to help brands achieve a number of things. For example, some companies have used them to highlight a specific campaign or target specific buyer personas. Others have used them to tell a short story or to inspire a specific call-to-action.

Layer Motion Slideshow with CSS Grid & TweenMax

Layer Motion Slideshow with CSS Grid & TweenMax

Today we’d like to share yet another CSS Grid-powered slideshow with you. The idea is to show and hide images with a reveal effect and add a parallax like effect to the main image and the title. For the title we’ve added two copied layers with an outline style which creates an interesting motion effect. For the animations we use TweenMax.

Motion Transition Effect CSS & TweenMax

Motion Transition Effect CSS & TweenMax

Today we’d like to share a little speedy motion effect with you. The idea is based on the Dribbble shot Ping Pong Slow Motion by Gal Shir where you can see a ping pong ball being shot from one racket to the other. The motion in the animation is enhanced by squeezing the ball and making some background stripes’ height pulsate. This is exactly what we want to do in a slideshow transition: we’ll squeeze the image and add some background effect. Additionally, we’ll make the letters of the title fly away consecutively.
