Interface Animation For The Web

Val on stage at Smashing Conf Whistler 2014

The workshop:

Motion design is a necessary skill for anyone working on the web today. The future of UX on the web includes animation and to keep up we need to embrace the power of web animation. This workshop will give you the motion design skills you need to design and build meaningful and sophisticated animation into your work. You’ll gain expert knowledge of the current web animation landscape and how animation fits into your design process.

We’ll examine where animation can be used to support UX and create high quality interactions. CSS, SVG, and JavaScript-based animation techniques will be covered, along with the pros, cons and support levels of each. Real-world examples will be broken down to demonstrate the qualities well executed animated interfaces have in common. It’s going to be a fun and knowledge-packed day of web animation goodness!

You’ll learn all this through hands-on exercises and demos. All sample code from the workshop is yours to keep to use in your own work and projects.
