Applied Works have created an animated intro sequence for The Times’ new Eureka iPad Edition. The app focuses on the theme of sports science, covering five key topics – engineering, medicine, psychology, human physiology and biology.
The intro sequence builds on the app’s graphic interface of interconnected hexagonal buttons, which act as the main navigation. Animated lines ‘spawn’ branches of hexagons, one for each of the five topics. As well as providing an elegant bridge between the app’s opening masthead and navigation screen, the animation also helps provide the user with a glimpse into the content and explanation of how the interface works.
