I recently stumbled upon this tweet, by animator and director John Likens, which reminded me of when I wanted to become an animator, early on in my career.
What amazes me is the attention to detail, mixed in with nostalgia, of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. TMNT was a staple of my childhood, with Leonardo being one of my favorite characters.
But after watching this, I was reminded of the fact that there exists micro animations. More specifically, micro interactions (used in the world of UX Design).
Although the clip of Leonardo is an animated short, micro isn’t too far off.
Here’s a video diving deeper into micro animations used with the tool Figma, a favorite for many of the world’s best web designers.
