While creating a website, tons of aspects should be taken into account, especially when it comes to resume and portfolio sites. A portfolio helps all creatives to showcase their work, get new clients, and share information. It’s extremely important to make your visitors feel that they control the website and are completely involved. Interactivity is one of the tools to achieve that. Interactivity is the best way to keep your old clients and to get new ones.
Interactivity means the degree of interaction between objects. In web design these objects are a client and a website. The reaction of the visual website elements on the mouse cursor moving can also be called interactivity. For example, have you ever seen a horizontal photo strip that moves right or left depending on your mouse position, or corners of the page that rise up encouraging you to turn it?
