CSS Animation inspires us with a look into interesting ways to add items to a list. These animations announce the arrival of new content and help draw attention to it. I’ll be thinking of times when each animation may be appropriate.
Fade – seems very standard; applicable for all types I would think
Slide down and Fade – draws attention better than Fade
Swinging in – something rustic; outdoors-y, fixing, tools, store-like. Ideally, an online hardware shopping site.
Swinging from Side – it doesn’t have the same country feel as the previous one. I think there is a youth-feel to this one. Something big, bold, and wants to make a statement. I think a site that is big on branding itself.
