The Ken Burns website banner animation effect is a type of panning and zooming effect achieved by adding an animated transition to a digital photograph which creates the illusion of movement. It is commonly used by filmmakers when video material is not available, but can also be applied to website design to increase visual impact and attract attention to specific areas of a photograph.

An accordion slider is a design utility that enables items to expand and collapse in response to user interaction. Accordions are incredibly useful for revealing additional information to a user and can be combined with subtle animations that contribute to a pleasant user experience.
