Silk is not just suitable for sharing collections of numbers and locations. There are also beautiful Silk sites out there that mostly contain text and images. The Animation Legends site is a great example: it has a wealth of information on animation’s greats, and resources for the aspiring animator.
We wanted to do a better job at showing the visual content inside sites like this. That’s why Silk sites now have a new visualization option: the collection overview. This overview shows a grid with pages for each collection, with a thumbnail if there is an image on the page. Here is an excerpt of the Animation Legend site with the overview in action:
We like the overview so much that we included it on all new and untouched homepages. If you already have your homepage set up, you can insert the collection overview like you would any other visualization.
We are looking forward to seeing more attractive homepages!
