I recently finished the first draft of Chapter 5 –
Animation and Motion: A New Design Material. It struck me as important subject
to cover in the book since motion is becoming an important design component in
all the major mobile platforms, yet most designers don’t have a lot of
experience working with it.
The backbone of the chapter explores the Twelve Basic Principles of
Animation from the
bible on animation – The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation.
learned a lot writing this chapter so I thought it would be fun content to
share here. So, for the next 12 days, I’ll be posting a principle a day along
with mobile examples. I’d be thrilled if you provide feedback, share any mobile
examples you’ve seen of the principles in action, or share your experiences
applying animation to your own mobile design work.
