Leveraging your motion skills in Software

Animation is a powerful medium to lean on when you are exploring new ideas and this skill is highly valuable in the tech software industry. This circle we will explore how motion can be a big differentiator if you choose to pursue a career in software design. We will discuss how you can be more effective in getting stakeholders buy in, push for new ideas and clarify user journey through motion. I will also share stories of how traditional animation is quite different from how designer might use motion in software development and things to consider when you are working with engineers to translate your work.
