Learning animation
[Part 1]

The beginning

If you’ve been following the blog you’ll know I’m busy with some site tweaks. I recently started to change up the portfolio page. I thought what better way to show a website than a video of the site. So I grabbed some screen recording software. After a little playing around I’d recorded my first video which you can check out here…

The first video of a client website.

I had a huge amount of fun so I decided to try my hand at a very basic logo animation. This was also a lot of fun but definitely needs improvement. Practice makes perfect (or at least better) as they say.

Watch the very cool video to the left. It’s got music, a hand grenade, an explosion and cool sound effects.

In a Flash

Then I decided I wanted to learn web animation. The CSS animations and interactions I sometimes use on sites are great but not the same thing. I want to be able to create animated scenes with interactions. So I downloaded Adobe Animate. Previously Adobe Flash.

I got my hands on a basic course and here’s the result so far. Right now it’s just a little green alien, the ground, some mountains and a rock pile. Next I’ll animate him. What’s he going to do? Well that would ruin the surprise. You’ll need to read future blog posts to find out….

Say No To Sliders

When it comes to web design the most important consideration is the user. It doesn’t matter how cool you or the designer thinks something is if the user doesn’t like it. Huge companies sometimes spend millions developing products that people ultimately hate. One such thing is sliders. Something you see on the majority of sites
