Work I liked:
This UI Animation gave me my idea on what to do for my own example. I didn’t make mine as complex, as each item on the screen jumps a bit when the cursor scrolls through it. I like that design aspect of it, but from a UI perspective I think it’s just easier to have the mouse scroll the menu (but then again, that example is on a phone).
This is one of the more simple UI designs that I came across, but I really enjoy it. The typing area grows as what’s being written in it gets longer. Could that pose a problem though if the email or username surpasses the surface limit of what it’s being used for? (It would have to be one long word). I also liked the use of comedy in it, misspelling the email, which I’m sure we’ve all done quite a lot.
This is my favorite UI animation design that I stumbled upon. I wish that all sites worked like this. The seemingly smooth transition from vertical to horizontal and then back to vertical is astounding to me. From my experience whenever I rotate my phone the change irritates me, but if the rotation was more like this, I think I would enjoy it.
This example originally caught my eye because I’m a big Twenty One Pilots fan, but once I actually got a look at the whole design I was hooked. From what I gather, once the listener favorites or likes the song, the application will bring the listener to the album that song is from. I think it’s a great idea and that music applications should adopt this method. It will introduce people to more songs from artists.
This example is something I’m sure everyone has gone through. You go to send that text, Snapchat, or email and it doesn’t send. Half the time I don’t even know that it didn’t send. I enjoy the buffer time and the option to delete or try resending it. It’s a very smooth transition.
Like I said earlier I got my inspiration for my design from the menu. However, I strayed away from food. I decided to use clothing instead since the holiday season is upon and clothes are a big portion of gifts given (at least in my family). I wanted to use more of a mouse-driven design which when translated to a phone would just be your finger at the top or the bottom of the screen. In my opinion, scrolling that way is easier than dragging a mouse up and down a screen or flicking with your fingers to scroll something.
