A popular trend in modern UX design is creating animated GIF images to demonstrate how an interface will behave with user interaction. The interface can relate to sliding menus, buttons, swipe-animated galleries, and a whole lot more. The best tool for creating these animations would be After Effects – a program by Adobe which offers a lot of powerful tools.

If you’ve never used After Effects before don’t sweat it! This software can be understood with just a bit of practice and repetition. I’ve cataloged a series of tutorials which display how you can build animated interfaces for websites and mobile apps. Some tutorials also cover graphic animation effects which explain how you can build custom FX and apply them to your own interfaces. If you’ve ever wanted to learn UI/UX animation these tutorials are the best place to get started on your journey.
