Today we’d like to share a little layout with you. The idea is based on the current trend of a grid layout where the columns are animated. You can see this kind of animation in Aristide Benoist’s amazing design for Everest or Hrvoje Grubisic’s GETZ — Photography Portfolio Website concept. In our demo, we animate a decorative image grid and make the columns move away in an alternating way, revealing some content underneath. We use a playful hover effect for the menu items and mimic the animating when they fly away. We also added some slight mouse move interaction for the columns.
The animations are powered by TweenMax.
The initial view of the demo is the navigation with the decorative grid in the background.
When clicking on one of the menu items, we animate the grid out by moving the columns in an alternating fashion, rotating them slightly. We mimic this behavior on the letters of the menu item.
When the grid moves away, the content area underneath is revealed:
We hope you enjoy this experiment and find it useful!
