LinkedIn Mobile: External Page Transition


Sometimes being taken to an external site from a feed can be jarring. I wanted to solve this by tying the relationship of the tap target within the feed, to the external page that the original article lives on. In this solution, when the article is tapped it rises toward the screen as the external page falls into place. This subtle movement creates a visual connection. All the secondary assets slide uppwards during the transition, creating a dynamic feel of inertia and helps the user learn the construct of the page.
