Today we’d like to share an experimental responsive layout with you. Initially, the layout shows four flexible boxes. When clicking on a box, it will expand to fullscreen and the others will scale down and fade out. When closing the current view, it will move back to the intial position while the other boxes come back up again. Another type of page transition can be seen on the works section where we will show a portfolio item by sliding in a panel from the bottom. The current view gets scaled down and disappears in the back.
The beautiful illustrations used in the works section of the demo are by talented Isaac Montemayor.
Let’s take a look at some screenshots:
The initial screen has the four flexible boxes. Resize the browser window to see them adapting fluidly.
When clicking on a box, it get’s expanded to fullscreen.
The view of a box that is expanded. A content are is revealed and we add a scroll to it when needed.
In the works section, we add a thumbnail grid which will reveal a details panel once we click on an item. The page transition here is the new item sliding in from the bottom and the old view scaling down and disappearing in the back.
The navigation through the items has the same page transition. When we close the item view, it will transition back down and the works view will scale back up again.
We hope you like this little experiment and find it inspiring!
