Designing Animation Awesomeness

A session at Future of Web Design NYC 2014

Tuesday 4th November, 2014

2:45pm to 3:25pm (EST)

Gone are the days of being stuck with nothing but hard-cut transitions on the web! The future of web design includes sophisticated animations in its interactions, and it’s up to us as designers to make them both meaningful and awesome. In this session we’ll cover where animation can add important detail and inform UX; how to get animation ideas out of your head; and techniques for prototyping animations as part of our design process. Just like typography, colour and others, animation is an element of design that can speak volumes in our work. Considering it early in the design process means we’ll be designing the best kind of animations. The kind that can take our work beyond good, to great!
