From our sponsor: Ship fast and never break a thing with Shortcut (formerly Clubhouse.io).

Inspired by this fantastic Dribbble shot by Matthew Hall, I wanted to experiment with this kind of inline link to menu block animation. So here’s a little experimental effect that does exactly that and then shows some images.

Here is Matthew’s original animation:

“Image Carousel” by Matthew Hall

With the focus on recreating the inline link to menu link animation, I also wanted to explore some kind of animations on the images. I found the staggering appearance the most fitting on here, but there are lots of possibilities.

So, the initial content view looks as follows:

When clicking on one of the inline links, each link moves to the right while all the other text moves to the left and disappears:

So here’s the result of the whole concept:

I really hope you enjoy this and find it inspirational!
