Blog 3: Creative Momentum Web Design Firm

Funny thing is I actually found this CSS tool on a web design firm site called Creative Momentum. I scrolled through and noticed a cool transformation on it’s photos where you can click to see more of their work. When you put your cursor over one of the photos, a circle thing appears over it and says “See more”. I thought that looked really cool and would love to do that myself. Here is an example of the sites CSS transition:

I used the inspector element tool on Google Chrome. It was intimidating to look at. There are a lot of things to chose from. I hope I found the right part. So this is what I found:

-webkit-background-clip: border-box;
-webkit-background-origin: padding-box;
-webkit-background-size: auto;
-webkit-transition-delay: 0s;
-webkit-transition-duration: 0.2s;
-webkit-transition-property: all;
-webkit-transition-timing-function: ease-in;
background-attachment: scroll;
background-clip: border-box;
background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
background-image: none;
background-origin: padding-box;
background-size: auto;
color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
cursor: auto;
display: inline-block;
font-family: ‘Open Sans’, helvetica, arial;
font-size: 14px;
font-weight: 200;
height: 280px;
margin-bottom: 2px;
margin-left: 2px;
margin-right: 2px;
margin-top: 2px;
outline-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
outline-style: none;
outline-width: 0px;
overflow-x: hidden;
overflow-y: hidden;
padding-bottom: 0px;
padding-left: 0px;
padding-right: 0px;
padding-top: 0px;
position: relative;
text-decoration: underline;
transition-delay: 0s;
transition-duration: 0.2s;
transition-property: all;
transition-timing-function: ease-in;
width: 280px;

I’m going to try it on my own and see what happens.

  1. This is very cool as a way to add a link and animation pictures! It not only helps identify what are clickable but also encourages users to click it by assuring them what they will get. Although I wonder if this is the complete coding since I tried it on my page and it doesn’t look exactly right. Maybe I need to work on my html text to make them correspond with each other. Thanks for sharing!


  2. This concept is a little similar to the one I posted about, where you can hover over images, and each image is interactive on its own. I think that this one you’re talking about is really cool, and I’d also like to try it, even though the amount of coding for one simple thing really is overwhelming.
