NUX Newcastle – 24 January 2019 – Animation and UX: elevate your designs with animation

NUX Newcastle meet-ups are kindly sponsored by Orange Bus.

The first NUX Newcastle of the year is on Thursday 24 January 2019. It is at Bamburgh House, Market Street East, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6BH.

Doors will open at 6pm for food, drinks and networking. The event will start at 6:30.

We will be giving away 2 free tickets for the new one-day Build IT Right conference on 4 April 2019. This is aimed at those building software in the North East and will provide a dedicated day away from your screens, expand knowledge, and be inspired how to adapt to emerging trends.

Animation and UX: elevate your designs with animation

Animation is a powerful design tool that designers all too often ignore. When used well, motion can engage, communicate and improve interactions. That’s the kind of animation we want in our work – animation that has both purpose and style.

Knowing how to use animation effectively will make your work stand out. This will allow you to approach projects differently than most designers.

Val Head from Adobe and Kirk Tierney from TH_NK will talk about where animation can best inform UX. They will talk about how to build more sophisticated animated interactions for the web and beyond.

About Val

Val is a web animation expert, author, and design advocate at Adobe.

She is the author of Designing Interface Animation, teaches CSS Animation on, and curates the weekly UI Animation Newsletter.

About Kirk

Kirk is a Senior UX Designer at TH_NK.

His studies in digital animation gave him a wide range of technological skills and refined his ability as a problem solver. Most importantly, in terms of setting the foundations as a UX designer, it was learning and understanding the empathetic nature of animation that has proved to be the most valuable.
