With the current state of CSS and JavaScript the web has seriously stepped up its animation game. As web designers and developers we’ve never had to understand animation principles like we do now. Smart animation comes from thinking like a motion designer when adding animations and transitions to our web work. There is a huge depth of knowledge we can pull from while we design and build the new UIs of the web.

In this session we will demonstrate key animation principles like timing, offsets, and others as they apply to UI work on the web. And we'll cover principles specific to UI animation that will make your work both usable and delightful. Consider this your crash course into becoming a web animation pro!
