A Little Shine and Polish

I added a simple, quick shine animation to the top banners to help reinforce the idea of metal. I also animated the SVG illustration accompanying the "Green Leaders" content, adding a little more weight to that section. It's really just a way to bring some life to the page and make the subject matter a little more engaging.

Green Leaders

Four Star Metal provides electroplating, powder coating, baked clear coating, polishing, buffing, stripping, and sandblasting. They deliver their own work and are proud of their efforts to reduce their impact on the environment, working within if not better than government targets and regulations for members of their industry.

We took some time to design and animate the line drawing in the "Green Leaders" section to bring some attention to it. SVGs can be a bit of a pain across different browsers, namely when it comes to setting the center of an element's origin, but thankfully I was able to animate most of the landscape universally.
