Principles of UX in Motion 🚀
Objects in real don't just start and stop instantly, and almost never move at a constant speed. When we open a drawer, we first move it quickly and slow it down as it comes out. Drop something on the floor, and it will fi. accelerate downwards, and then bounce back up after hitting the floor.
02: Offset and Delay
Offset & Delay is the second of only two UX in Motion Principles that is influenced by Disneys Animation Principles. The utility of this principle is that it pre-consciously sets the user up for success by ‘telling' the user something about the nature of the objects in the interface.
Parenting is a powerful Principle that ‘relates' objects in the user interface. In the above example, the ‘scale' and ‘position' property of the top or ‘child' object is parented to the ‘position' property of the bottom or ‘parent' object. Parenting is the linking of object properties to other object properties.
Transformation is the most discernible, largely because it stands out. A ‘submit' button changing shape to become a radial progress bar and finally changing shape again to become a confirmation checkmark is something that we notice. It grabs our attention, tells a story, and h. completion.
05: Value Change
Text-based interface objects, that is to say, numbers and text can change one of those ‘elusive obvious' concepts. Text and number changes are so common that they pass us by without us bringing to them distinction and rigor to assess their role in supporting usability.
The act of masking asking can be thought of as a relationship between the shape of the object and its utility. Because designers are familiar with ‘masking' in the context of static design, it behooves us to bring distinction to the UX in Motion Principle ‘Masking' as it occurs in time, as an act, and not as a state.
