I've been trying to figure out the name of this portfolio style. Is it as simple as Staggered?

Example 1

enter image description here

I'm attempting to do something similar, but I have no idea what the style is called. I've searched for staggered, but no satisfactory results.

Among the general public it's probably best known as the style used in Pinterest, so if someone doesn't know what you mean by " masonry style", "Pinterest style" might get across the type of columns of thumbnails –  user568458 Aug 18 '13 at 19:25
    
Yes, that's right! I forgot Pinterest uses this style. –  ckpepper02 Aug 18 '13 at 19:57

It's called Masonry after bricklaying terminology.

jQuery has plug ins to accomplish such layouts.
