INTERACTION DESIGN, ANIMATIONS, 2015-2018
Interaction Design is one of my greatest passions, more specifically micro-interactions. I love to get lost in time fine-tuning every single detail of transitions and animations. Here, I am sharing some of my favorite little projects that I posted on my Dribbble a few years back.
These prototypes were created with Principle. I made the source files available for download, which allows you to use them in personal and commercial projects. If you would like to play with the .prd files below, choose the ones you like to download and have fun!
I make lists for everything. One of my favorite things to do is to open my notes app and go through my list marking all the ones I’ve completed – it gives me so much joy! Same goes for my email app, I like to read and archive everything to hit inbox zero. I thought of making this moment a little more magical by creating a delightful animation for the action of marking something as done.
I believe that details matter. Even the little ones. With that in mind, I created this fun animation to elevate the joyfulness of completing tasks in a to-do list. For me, my most relevant task at the moment was to update my website. And, as you can see, I finally did it.

When major apps announced dark theme UI, there were a lot of mixed reactions from the design community, I personally, love it. Some of us even took the time to create concept redesigns of popular apps or reproduce existing animations with our favorite prototyping tools.
I created this transition inspired by Charles Patterson's super elegant animation for his Life project made with InVision Studio. I "rebounded" his shot with a slight tweak using the Twitter iOS interface.

The only piece of feedback I had regarding his shot was that the Justify option was missing, and that's why I added it to my version.

These are some of my favorite micro-interaction animations created in my free time just for fun. I like to always find a way to solve a problem or just think of another approach to delight the little moments with motion design.
Page Indicator Transition
Back in 2015, I designed this page indicator transition that moves in the opposite direction of the content as you swipe between pages. I created an effect that shows the current page's dot moving and morphing from point A to B, instead of the default fade effect that we see everywhere.
Search Bar Animation
I created this search bar animation to demonstrate how an icon could serve multiple purposes by using micro-interaction transitions to morph its original shape into a new element that emphasizes the icon's original meaning. All in the context of helping the user find what they are looking for.
UX Pattern for Image Gallery
I got inspired by another shot that Oleg Frolov posted on Dribbble. I thought it was a really cool idea and I reproduced it on Principle.
I had a lot of fun reproducing Google Material Design ring button animation on Principle. I love Material Design. I just do. It is so fluid, smart and intuitive.
