Today we’d like to share a set of link hover effects with you. The main idea is to reveal a thumbnail image with a special effect when hovering a link. The inspiration for this idea comes from the effect seen on Fuge’s website where you can see a thumbnail showing when hovering the underlined links. More effect inspiration comes from Louis Ansa’s portfolio and Zhenya Rynzhuk’s Dribbble shot “Blown Art Works and News Platform”.

The animations are made using TweenMax.

Attention: Note that we use modern CSS properties that might not be supported in older browsers.

Have a look at some of the effects:
