7 Tips for Animations in Web UI Design

In-Pieces-1

Animation and motion in web design is proving to be the biggest thing in recent years. Everywhere you look, there is some hint of movement – or actual movement in the form of a video or animated tidbit.

But how do you use it? Motion is more than just a good video clip or cartoon character. Creating real motion requires a directed approach and can combine still and moving objects. Here’s how you do it. (And each tip is paired with an example to help foster your imagination.)

How to Hook Users With Habit-Forming UX Design

Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 6.34.18 PM

Apple. Facebook. Twitter. Google. Pinterest. These companies all have one thing in common — they create habits among their users. People use these products habitually on a daily basis and they’re so compelling that many of us struggle to imagine life before they existed.

But creating habits is easier said than done. Even though I’ve written extensively about behavior engineering and the importance of habits, there are few resources to give designers the tools they need to design and measure user habits. That’s why I wrote “Hooked: How to Build Habit-Form Products,” which explains the four-step Hook Model that can help form habits among your users.

In this post, we’ll take a look at how you can use Habit Testing to build products that users not only love, but are hooked on.
