10 Principles of Motion Design

02 March 2018

Brush Ninja is designed to be simple to use so that anyone can animate, but that doesn’t reduce the skill needed to make fantastic animations. This animated gif shows 10 principles of motion design that will help to make your animations engaging to watch.

  1. Timing, Spacing and Rhythm
  2. Eases
  3. Mass & Weight
  4. Anticipation
  5. Arcs
  6. Squash, Stretch and Smears
  7. Follow through and Overlapping action
  8. Exaggeration
  9. Secondary or layered action
  10. Appeal

I find it’s good to look over these rules periodically to remind myself of how useful they can be.
