Web animation has dominated conversations for the last few years. Front-end developers and interaction designers are hungry to provide more value than just arranging boxes and text on screen. Users have come to expect UI animation as a standard. This talk will show you how to use Adobe After Effects as a prototyping tool to create cutting edge UX animation. We will dissect practical examples of prototyping for desktop, mobile and installations. This process allows for rapid discovery, giving front-end developers and interaction designers the ability to achieve new standards and push the web forward, without wasting countless hours juggling complex code libraries.
Front-end developers, interaction designers, UX/UI designers, web designers, motion designers. This talk is designed for those who have no formal animation training but are practicing in the field of web/app design and development.
Desired outcome for this session
- Theory and best practices for purpose-driven animation
- Walk away with the tools and techniques for creating web animation prototypes using After Effects
- Learn how the basic principles of animation can be applied to push new and immersive interaction design solutions
