So, what do you do when it comes to adding images to a website?
It’s simple! You will either choose a raster or a vector. A raster graphic is the one that has a set solution and is made up of pixels. While a vector image (scalable vector graphics) has their points, lines, and shapes.
They are commonly known as SVG’s and are an XML based graphic format scriptable, independent and animatable.
If you are want to develop your site responsive as well as interactive, nothing can beat the versatility of SVG’s.
Here is how you can design a website with them-
Create Graphs and Charts
With scalable vector graphics, you can create charts, graphs and display your data through them. SVG’s can be used for any form of data, and are also perfect for impressing your audience.
Morph Various Shapes
Shape Morphing means animating the SVG images using Cascading Style Sheets. All you need is some code skills, and you can morph one object into another. Moreover, it also gives you a property that can be used to define how the starting and ending points will move and perform.
Draw The Lines To Explain A Context
Lines is one of the powerful mediums in SVG’s as they are scalable, functional, and can be used to illustrate diagrams and more.
Consider Making SVG Icons
Icons are universally understood, and websites all over the world make full use of them. Although the icons are built into the browsers, you can implement SVG icon and enhance its appeal in no time.
Moreover, the SVG icons have good control of CSS and can also match the size of content that is published there.
Animate The Interfaces and Connect Various Processes
Animation of the interfaces is one the easiest ways to make your site interactive as the animations let our brains to connect with the processes easily.
However, by animations, we don’t mean to move every graphic. Instead just animate the load screen icon so that the user knows that your website is loading.
The Bottom Line:
The best part about SVG is that they are equipped with own coordinate system and use their own points to recreate the vector images. So if you are designing a website, use scalable vector graphics or just head to tools like SiteSonic that offer you a free template, editing options and more to launch a website.
