Use of Attractive Animation in Website Design
A website with an excellent and attractive animation display is a fun thing. When used correctly, animation can give a lively and interactive impression, adding extra layers to add to the experience of the website user.
At present, there are fewer and fewer websites that use animation, both in GIF, SVG, WebGL, background video and so on. And the animation itself can be used in some functions that are part of the website.
One of the oldest animated uses on a design site is to move user attention while waiting for your website to run/load. Animation can provoke our users’ perceptions of your product technology, can make it look better than it is. Your users also have something fun to witness while waiting for our website to open.
Loading animation is better if it’s simple. Forget about additional effects such as strange sounds or designs. Animation must match the identity of the site itself, whether it is fun cartoon animation or smooth and professional animation.
Navigation and menus (nonscrolling)
To save screen space, the latest trend is a hidden navigation menu that will be revealed or published when you click a button on the web screen. For this, animation is an urgent matter to connect the two elements visually.
Animated pop outs will create a menu that is present as if it were a secret slide that forms the entire interaction going smoothly.
The most realistic hover animation is to say an interactive element. When the user clicks on a link/link on our website and when the cursor is above the link, but the user has not worked on the click, the color of the link will change, different from the original color, moving text, appearing or shifting, the cursor hovers over the link and the link changes.
Signs that the button or text can be clicked on so that the floating effect appears, it must be visible to the useful elements. Makes the user want to move the mouse over that benefit, and creates a floating animation with reasonably intuitive.
Gallery and slideshow
Animated galleries and slideshows show many images without disturbing the user. How fast and how little the image cycle can be displayed. But the times needed for the evolution of one image to another must be right. Not too long or not too fast.
Galleries and slideshows are straightforward and good things to watch for users because they naturally mimic the benefits of photo albums. But this should not be used too much, minimizing the actual design of the slider or gallery, then making sure the images that are present each 5-9 seconds.
Unique animation of attention
The human eye wants to be more interested in moving things. This creates animation as the best device for controlling the user’s visual hierarchy, especially with websites where there are fewer images or static business.
The animation is a great way to add intrigue to forms, even menu items, or calls to action. Smart animations are unique to users one time, while standard navigation is still dwelling in the same location and merely draws users who have more traditional empiricism. In this matter, the best is not to be out of range.
The success of scrolling navigation is long, depending on the quality of the animation. A website will not be able to roll long if there are no exciting animation effects. As a user who controls the scroll, the user will feel an element of the process.
This is not too practical to use, but doing well in creating a site can make users more interested and make it more fun. Small movements of the mouse can shift the image, and when combined with layer separation can create a pleasant effect.
If it’s confusing to use excessive animation, then using simple animations can add certain vitality to a website. The key is to moderate each part that is present at one time. Or use a gentle motion on all the images.
Maintain the right equilibrium. Don’t create animations such as showing the urban hustle and bustle, make parts of all stages of the picture at different intervals. This makes it “busy” with the user without overstimulating the situation. So, simplicity is recommended. Remember that each motion on the screen is uniquely attentive, to the point that it’s too little animation when the same makes a mess.
