Sometimes after a long, exhausting day it is enough to look at something beautiful. Therefore “satisfying” videos or pictures are very good. You can see in this article that this is also possible with CSS and JavaScript!


Such satisfying animations are simply beautiful and soothing to look at. It’s ingenious when you have a deeper use, like the first example as load animation. Just let yourself be surprised what the web has to offer.

Some animations are interactive. Just hover over it and click on it with your mouse.

Attention: The single pens are not from me!

Not enough? Then this could be something for you!
