Animation isn’t just a pinch of fun in user interfaces. Used wisely, motion enhances usability and navigability of the layout, makes microinteractions clear and transitions beautiful. Also, it adds the mood and connects UI with objects from the real world, which may be the factor of comfort for many users. To support designers on that, we’ve just released a pack of free animated icons in JSON for Lottie, GIF, and After Effects format. Join the release party on Product Hunt or explore the details about it right here.
