A few sample animatics
- Project Highlights -
This project was super fun for a couple of reasons. 1. I got to stare at photos of amazing vintage furniture all day and 2. I got to sit around and work with some of the most talented designers I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
A note on motion
Too often designers forget the interaction part of interaction design... how something moves and transitions as a part of confirming an action, delighting a customer, and leaving a lasting mark. I am not a skilled motion designer (I wish I was!) but working in static alone is not enough.
I used a combination of "Examples in the wild" and rough animatics to communicate key design intent for interaction patterns and page transitions. Was that the best most polished way to do motion design? Absolutely not. But it got the point across and allowed me and the developers to have more meaningful conversations about the intent.
I believe whatever your personal tool kit, as a designer you have to find a way to bring the ideas to life with movement.
