Let’s Work Together!

Val Head at FOWD London

If you’re looking to get up to speed on the latest web animation techniques or starting a UI animation project, let’s work together! Here are two things you can hire me for:

Web Animation Workshops
Need to get your team up to speed on web animation? I’ve got you covered! I teach fun and effective workshops on interface animation for the web both for designers and developers. Workshop content and length can be customized for your team or event.

UI Animation Consulting
I can help you find the best way to express your brand in motion, document motion in your style guide, or how to use motion effectively in your product. I’ll work with your team to determine where animation can improve the experience and communicate your story effectively. Plus, guide you through creating practical documentation to keep your motion design efforts moving forward.

Get in touch and let’s make something animatedly amazing together!

Here’s what others have to say about working with me:

“Val taught us a lot of the theory about motion and how and when to use it in meaningful ways. But more importantly, we were able to go hands on, have her poke through our products, and actually get concrete, tangible ways to improve everything. They’re small changes, but they’re going to result in a drastically better user experience!”

– Nick Small, Front End Lead at Shopify

“Val was amazing! Equal parts informative, and entertaining. We absolutely loved having her over to teach us a bit more about web animation.”

– Dave Martin, Creative Director, Automattic

“Val’s workshop was one of the most rewarding days of attending the Smashing Conference. Val is a dynamic, funny, and engaging speaker. As a designer, my CSS animation knowledge prior to this workshop was limited to knowing how to implement a few simple hover transitions. Val’s workshop helped demystify CSS animations and has given me the understanding and skills I need to implement more complex transitions and effects.”

– Mary Kuris, User Eexperience Designer, First Republic Bank

“I have attended many web design & development workshops over my 17 year career and in my experience it’s rare that there’s as much take-home learning as I found in Val’s excellent workshop at FOWD London 2015. Her upbeat positivity and concise, practical examples served as a springboard for getting to grips with CSS animation and I’ll definitely try to attend another of Val’s workshops in future.”
