Used in the right context and settings, animations can add meaning to a user interface and offer immersive interactivity as well. A new article by Preston Pierce.

My client's office in San Francisco has a corner called the UX area. Here's what happens as I type “UX area” in Google Calendar as the location for a meeting: What are the chances any of those are what I mean?
