Animation is a word that used to make me shudder.
I’m from a generation of devs that grew up in the era of Flash splash screens. Say no more.
But Val Head has changed all that for me.
She has successfully demonstrated that if you are smart about how and when you use animation in your work, the results can be spectacular. Take Stripe’s checkout experience for example. It uses animation to guide you through a process, reducing cognitive load and adding delight. And that is just one of the great examples we chatted about.
If you’ve always been a skeptic, read through Val’s transcript. You won’t be disappointed.
