Animation: the fast and the furious

  • Be purposeful and thoughtful with movement
  • Ensure consistency across animations
  • Prototype in Keynote or PowerPoint because it’s super easy
  • Be responsive for smaller devices; in other words animations that have space to breath on the desktop are overwhelming on a mobile device’s small screen
  • Use a design system’s guidelines or borrow from another company’s guidelines to help with easing, speed, etc.
  • Add on visual bling
  • Flip objects 360 or rotate a page, such as some of the PowerPoint animations
  • Create getting started experiences that require a “Skip this intro” link
  • Forget accessibility
  • Skip user testing
