Rich Animations

Video is a must, but so are "rich animations". Rich Animations are infographic-like, fun and instructive graphics that come alive, play, and run much like a video.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, June 30, 2017 7:59 AM

Watching The Story of Stuff we realized there were some things, some hard things, better told via animation. A human narrator would have made the hard stuff too hard, but animating the devastation even our favorite stuff like iPhone create stopped the "rejection reflex" long enough to listen. 

Not hard to see why animation is so effective. We've been brought up on cartoons, Sesame Street and Simpsons. If you aren't using animation to teach, engage, and make points you might otherwise not be able to make your website is less fun, effective, and profitable.

Hans's curator insight, March 19, 2013 8:43 AM

One distinction between web and print is the ability to present multimedia. We have seen designers trying to figure out ways to incorporate this in home pages for several years, and so far most attempts have been made with debatable usability. Back then people asked: What can the developers do for us? Ok, great let's find a way to use it. So websites became reflections of the technological state rather than reflections of users' needs. But lately I witnessed an emerging web design trend that actually adds value to the users. Single page layouts with big images, animated backgrounds, music and smooth scrolling are everywhere. Did designers finally learn how to master the multimedia sandbox? Applied in the right way video can evoke attention, create emotional atmospheres, entertain audience and tell empathatic stories. This article explains how to do it in a user friendly approach with some practical examples.
