Enhance your Design Skills to Lead your Team and become Visible to Leaders

From this essay, I developed a framework that was so cutting-edge and effective that corporate teams have been hiring me to teach it to their design teams.

Companies including Dropbox, Slack, Oracle, Salesforce, Airbnb, Kayak, Capital One all engaged with the Essary “Creating Usability with Motion: The UX in Motion Manifesto”. I developed a framework that was so cutting-edge and effective that corporate teams have been hiring me to teach it to their design teams.

You can learn how to incorporate these lessons and more, during this live “Creating Usability with Motion” workshop with me.



Issara knows what he is talking about and is tremendously experienced/read in motion. He helped us develop a language and an eye for good motion vs bad. I think we should be able to take off after the workshop!!

This workshop offers you a chance to quickly learn and discuss high level usability and motion examples in an open format. Wishing I could do this workshop weekly with my entire team.


Andre, Visual Designer, Bank of America, Oakland


Very helpful in allowing me to ‘see’ motion. Before this workshop I glazed over the motion or saw it more as a delight element. Now I have the language and awareness to analyze motion effectiveness and the understanding to start designing supportive motion for UX.
