From the beginning, one of my customers wanted to have tiles on his webpage. I showed him a couple of possibilities, but he fell in love with this profile tiles:


Having some text on a transparent box at the bottom of a picture that- on mouse over- fills up the whole picture and offers additional information.

Now this was from a webpage done with Sharepoint, so it was not possible to just copy it. I spent quiet some time to go through many many WordPress plugins offering Hover Effects, but only to find one having a title on the picture without mouse over was already a pain.
