Some ideas for horizontal smooth scrolling layouts powered by Locomotive Scroll.
The main concept behind these layouts is to play around with animations that feel and work well for scrolling to the sides. This includes animating images and text depending on the direction we scroll. Moving things up and down for example or skewing them can create a really interesting dynamic effect.
An inline menu layout with a playful hover animation and a gallery content preview panel.
Spacetime lets you figure-out what time it is, all-over the world:
- calculate time in remote timezones
- support daylight savings, leap years, and hemispheres
- Moment-like 💘 API (but immutable!)
- Orient time by quarter, season, month, week..
- Zero Dependencies – (no Intl API)
- only 43KB.
Ztext gives the illusion of volume by creating layers from an HTML element. There’s no need to spend hours fiddling with
<canvas> or forcing users to download multi-megabyte WebGL libraries. Content remains fully selectable and accessible.
Some experimental video transitions using Curtains.js and shaders.We’ve done some crazy polygon transitions, and before that some WebGL Image Transitions. But a lot of people have been asking how to translate those techniques into the video world. And I agree, one cannot underestimate the importance of video on the web.
Some ideas for scroll animations for image grids powered by Locomotive Scroll.
A simple slideshow with tilted thumbnails and large titles that animate when navigating. So the main idea is to animate the tilted thumbnails out of the viewport when navigating to the next or previous slide. While the thumbnails move out, the titles get animated too, in that reveal/unreveal fashion that seems to be quite trendy now. The direction of the motion depends on whether we’re navigating back or forth.
A layout with a menu and background image grid that animates to an inner content page. The idea is to show a menu with a nice background grid of images and when choosing to explore a project, an animation happens where the images of the background grid fly away and an inner page shows.
A small set of magnetic buttons with some fun hover animations.The main idea of these buttons is that they are magnetic and follow the mouse pointer. Along with that, there’s lots of room to play with some interesting hover animations. A very nice thing to explore is the motion of an additional element like a shadow or another line. The parallax effect created by moving the button’s elements differently, gives a nice twist to the animation.
