I had been looking at incorporating animations into my designs but didn’t know where to start.
Val starts off by describing the fundamentals of animation that Disney created but in a way that makes applying them to UI/UX design understandable and easy. Then she provides detailed case studies about how those techniques can be used to solve for a variety of design goals along with Vimeo video links so you can see what the animation looks like. She goes on to explain how you can get buy-in from stakeholders and developers. And finally she talks about the tools and methods needed so you can add animations into your workflow.
As a UX designer, after reading this book, I am able to see past my standard basic static pages and begin creating interesting, understandable, and easy to use interfaces.
If you are designer who wants to work on your design chops, I would recommend this book.
