Twitter Heart Animation

November 6, 2017

This is a recreation of Twitter’s Like Button animation. The entire animation lives on a single sprite sheet. The animation consists of 29 different images with only 1 image shown to the user at a time. When the user clicks on the heart, the background image quickly steps through the sprite sheet to reveal the animation. I also created a custom button using CSS. The button animates when the user clicks on it.

Silky Smooth Box Shadow

November 3, 2017

Learned a neat trick from Tobias Ahlin for animating box-shadows. The technique allows us to animate shadows while maintaining optimal performance. Instead of animating the box-shadowing expanding, we animate a pre-scaled shadow's opacity. This creates the illustion that the shadow is scaling larger while keeping our animation frame rate high.

Language Selector

I recreated the Google homepage and added the ability for it to be responsive. This means the site intelligently adapts to different screen sizes. The user interface rearranges itself for optimal desktop and mobile experience. For example, when viewing on a small screen, the search bar reveals a search button but hides itself on a large display.
