Discover Awesome Tips to Add Animation to Your Website.

It was one of those days that was just refusing to progress and I was just a blink away from dozing off when I accidentally spotted an open webpage on the computer next to me. And I was mesmerised. It was a Cartoon Network’s page and it was not just the images that had me enchanted, but the website itself- it was alive. It was fun, cute and attractive. This was first time the potential of an animated website truly hit me.

Animated websites appeal to the audience in a way that regular stationary websites simply can’t. They make content easily understandable, easily digestible and are way more  engaging. It has been proven that your audience is more likely to stay on a website that is animated.

TIP#1 – MAKING WEBSITES LEANER & LIVELIER

Cartoon Network may not be the first to use animation on its website, I am pretty sure it is not the last. Folks have always been looking for ways to get some animation on their websites- remember those Flash websites that took forever to load?

Then came SVGs- Scalable Vector Graphics. SVGs were not heavy and quick loading – suddenly the world of animatable websites opened up to the world!

AWESOME TIP#2 – TO SVG OR NOT TO SVG?

Wondering  why you should use SVGs- apart for the fact that it makes your website absolutely gorgeous, unquestionably interesting and impressively easy to follow? Well, here’s why-

Scale it up or low and SVG doesn’t get pixelated. Regardless of the size, it retains the quality. Today’s websites and landing pages have to be responsive and this can often be challenging. SVG can give you consistent experience across platforms- desktop, laptop, tab or mobile- because it is resolution-independent. So your audience gets an HD experience everywhere.
