There are numerous ways to represent the prototype of an upcoming project to the client. You can stick to the traditional path and overwhelm the client with a bulk of paper material and digital sketches accompanied by extensive descriptions. Or you could go for modern tools such as Adobe After Effects, Framer.js or MarvelApp that will make the future interface look pretty realistic, alive, much more friendly and approachable. The latter is a preferable option nowadays: a bit of interactivity has never hurt anyone and in case of displaying work proves to be pretty effective . One of such modern tools are the animated Gif walkthroughs. They are not precisely a brand-new solution (they have been with us for several years), nevertheless they are still attention-grabbing.
Despite looking like an excellent instrument for a pastime, it has a potential to benefit any project by improving and enriching the way of introducing it to the potential customers. It is small, lightweight, easily generated and most importantly engaging. It presents the concept in an unobtrusive and playful manner that naturally wins over the client.
Today we have collected 20 great examples of animated interfaces.
