Today I’d like to share a little layout animation with you. It’s inspired by the design of Sturdy’s client showcase. Initially, we have a row based menu layout which shows some thumbnails on hover. Using the GSAP’s flip plugin, we animate the row to a content preview with larger images which fly to their position in a grid.

Here’s the initial view:

When hovering, some images appear on the right side. Once we click, the thumbnails animate to form a grid and some additional grid items appear:

Here is how it all comes together:

I hope you enjoy this little animation and find it useful!
