Recently we paid closer attention to the UI designers and tried to answer the question of how motion design benefits UI. From GIFs to cinemagraphs to three-dimensional graphics, motion design has steadily evolved over the past three years. Here’s a look at the past and the future of Motion Design.
The trends from the past:
- More emphasis on seamless transitions
- GIFs continued to dominate
- Brands started experimenting with cinemagraphs
- The return to retro
- 3D-eliminated boundaries
- VFX-augmented experience
What you can expect in 2019
- Kinetic typography will prevail
- Grain effect will make designs more relatable
- Where motion design is headed
- Storytelling will help you stand out
- Good design will continue to drive business
More businesses will realize that design has an equal seat at the table and that executives need to have a vested interest in design. And designers will feel empowered to make data-driven decisions and optimize their processes in a way that makes sense for the business.
