Transitional Interfaces

Pasquale D’Silva:

Designers love to sweat the details. Much time is spent pixel-fucking buttons, form styles, setting type, & getting those icons as sharp as a tack. A+, great job, don’t stop you guys.

…but there’s little consideration about how it all fits together outside of a static comp. You tap a button and the form just …appears? You swipe to delete an item and it just vanishes? That’s super weird and un-natural. Nearly nothing in the real world does anything as jarringly as just swapping states. It would feel like a glitch.
