Wayfinding with Animation

Last week I worked on ways to draw the user’s attention to a hamburger menu. I thought back to Val Head and Sarah Drasner’s animation workshop, which I was lucky enough to attend last year and thought, “animation can help me with this.” I wanted to get the user’s attention to the hamburger menu, but not in an obnoxious “LOOK AT ME HEY HI HELLO!!!” way. I prototyped three possible solutions.

Getting to prototype different animation-based solutions to solve a problem for users was a really fun experience and I hope I get to do more of it in the future! Animation is a wonderful way to help your users find their way in your product. 🎉
