Particle Animation in Web Design: Fresh Trend?
We have already examined websites that have dynamic, abstract home pages, today we are going to delve a bit deeper into this mainstream and take a closer look at particle animation that has become a quite popular instrument for adorning ‘welcome’ sections.
From simple dots that are chaotically scattered throughout the screen to dots that form various simple geometric shapes and complex images, particles animations vary. It can be a bulk of vibrant balls, a scope of flat circles, a mass of plane triangles or a ton of pieces of different shapes. What’s more, their behavior can hardly be called similar. The developers force particles to move around something, react to users’ actions or follow the mouse cursor, vibrate or dance. Some of them take the leading position while others stay in the shadows performing a supporting role. Nevertheless, all of them have one thing in common: they unobtrusively give the interface a sense of motion and a geometric vibe. Let’s take a look at some fresh examples.
