Animating the Web!

Combo Meeting: Creative Cloud and OC Interactive - Tuesday, April 21

The Creative Cloud and OC Interactive User Groups are joining forces this month to welcome back Chris Griffith. Chris is rejoining us for an exciting discussion about new possibilities for creating animations on the web. Although our phones and tablets may not be able to run Adobe Flash-based animations, the mobile web is far from static! This presentation is going to explore the use of CSS-based animations as a way to bring motion back into your web design. Bring your laptop and play along as we really make the web move.

As an added bonus, we will take a look at some other web-friendly animation solutions that you can add to your design library.

One of our topic themes for this year's meetings is "Making Things Move!" Led by Chris, we'll be discovering new ways to make this happen for our web designs. You're sure to be inspired and to be able to take away some cool new tips and techniques!
