Why learn animation?
Create interfaces that stand out
UI animation is an effective, creative way of bringing static interfaces to life. As well as being a powerful storytelling medium, UI animation can help to establish stronger branding—an animated icon, text, or graphic is much more likely to grab the user’s attention and engage your target audience.
Boost your user experience
UI animation isn’t just a way to embellish your digital product’s UI; it’s also a powerful tool for enhancing your user experience. By providing vital visual cues, UI animation can guide users around your interface, inform them of load times, and let them know when an action is complete.
Learn in-demand skills
Mastering UI animation tools, skills, and principles will help you meet the growing demand for beautiful, responsive digital experiences—and supercharge your resumé.
