Animation often gets a bad rap for being nothing more than decorative, sometimes in poor taste. But, it turns out that animation can add value to the digital world by making interactions more intuitive, interesting, and seductive.

Rachel Nabors, animation ambassador and founder of Tin Magpie, is excited to show you how animation can benefit user experience.

Theories that make the case for animation
  • In-betweening and how it helps users process interactions faster
  • Animations that mimic real-world experiences are more readily accepted by users

Six principles to take animations from good to great
  • Causality, feedback, location, progression, physics, and transition
  • Reinforce relationships, structure, and cause and effect by combining the six principles

Best practices that enhance an interface
  • Adapt for accessibility with an animation kill switch
  • Know when animation helps and when it hinders

Your process and where animation fits
  • Consider animation early on with the use storyboards and animatics
  • Animate “key poses” in interactions to bring users along with task flow

Learn the guiding principles of when and why to use animation, how it fits into your process, and best practices to ensure your motion design always serves the user. Join Rachel to learn how to put animation to work for your interface and its users.

A light dinner will be provided (Thanks to our host TEKsystems!) The webinar will start promptly at 6:00 PM, preceded by a half hour for socializing, networking, and food.
