ANIMATED WEBSITE

Picture dynamic visuals, smooth transitions, and interactive elements that engage your visitors. Let Shift ONE create an animated website that doesn't just look good; it comes alive.

WHAT IS AN ANIMATED WEBSITE?

An animated website incorporates motion and visual effects into its design. Through the use of animated graphics, images, or videos, the site's elements move or change appearance.

This animation can be as simple as a button changing colour when hovered over, or as complex as a full-page transitional effect. 

The goal: to create a more dynamic and visually appealing experience for the user.

SHOULD I ANIMATE MY WEBSITE?

  • Understand Your Audience: If your target audience is likely to appreciate and benefit from animations, it might be a valuable addition.
  • Content First: Ensure that animations serve a purpose and enhance the content, rather than detract from it.
  • Testing: Conduct A/B testing with and without animations to measure the effect on user engagement, conversions, and other key metrics.
  • Professional Design: If you decide to go ahead, consider working with experienced designers. They will understand how to implement animations in a way that complements your site's overall design and functionality.

HOW DOES AN ANIMATED WEBSITE WORK?

  • HTML & CSS: These are the bones and skin of the website. Just like in our bodies, bones give structure (HTML), and skin gives the appearance (CSS). Without them, there wouldn't be a base for the animations.

 

  • JavaScript and its Libraries:  JavaScript brings to life the elements on the webpage. Libraries like jQuery, GreenSock (GSAP), and Three.js are like tools in the puppet master’s toolkit, each with its own specialities.

 

  • SVGs (Scalable Vector Graphics): Remember those colouring books with outlines waiting to be filled in? SVGs are somewhat similar. They’re graphics that, no matter how much you zoom in or out, remain crisp and clear.

 

  • CSS Animations: CSS isn't just for static looks. It can also create animations, transitions, and transformations, making elements fade, slide, rotate, and more.

 

  • Canvas & WebGL: Picture a painter with a blank canvas. The canvas element in web design provides a space where graphics can be drawn using JavaScript. WebGL takes it a notch higher by allowing GPU-accelerated image processing, enabling complex visual effects and animations.
