Fellow UX/UI & Product Designers

Are you ready to dramatically accelerate your career and easily command higher fees from clients like…

Facebook, Dropbox, Slack, Oracle, Salesforce, Airbnb, Kayak, Twitter, Amazon, Nordstrom, HBO, Target, Hanes, AT&T, T-Mobile, Philips, MTV, UNAIDS, and more?

The truth of the matter is...

All of these above-mentioned companies have been clients of mine! In fact, I got so busy I’ve turned down freelance work at the moment!

Before I go any further, you should know that…

Good design simply doesn’t cut it any more.

My secret to landing all of these clients stems from just ONE powerful tool in my skill set that gives me an unfair advantage over countless other designers. If you get this ONE thing right, you too can win pitch after pitch after pitch with an endless roster of household name brand companies that pay you top dollar for your jaw-dropping work!

That ONE thing is...

Knowing how to intentionally design and pitch UI Animation.

Professional UI Animation & Motion industry myths demystified by an insider...

MYTH #1

After Effects is too complicated to use

False! One of the most common misconceptions is that it takes weeks and months to learn After Effects. While it is true that After Effects is a deep animation tool, nearly all UI Animation uses a very specific subset of After Effects features...which I reveal in super easy steps!

MYTH #2

I need to be a professional animator to create animations

Wrong! You do NOT need to become a professional animator to transform your designs to jaw-dropping, ultra-professional UI animation and motion renders...when you follow my proven short cuts!

MYTH #3

Learning After Effects for UX projects is a waste of time

Nope. The truth is that showing high quality renders of your UI motion ideas to your stakeholders, team, or client, is always superior to showing amateurish motion made in other programs – even if it it isn't interactive! I should know, I win nearly all my UX motion pitches BECAUSE I show my ideas in full fidelity...and I’ll show you how to swipe and deploy all my best kept secrets!

"After Effects training that is catered towards UX/UI designers"
"This is one of the best investments you can make"

★★★★★

“I’m just excited that someone in our industry has taken the initiative to put together After Effects training that is catered towards UX/UI designers. Motion is becoming such an important part of designing and communicating my work, and I have found it incredibly difficult to find resources online to learn the tool.”

Dickson Fong
Lead at Search at Google, San Francisco

★★★★★

“The UX in Motion video tutorials were key to my expertise with motion in UIs.  The tutorials do a great job of guiding you through the fundamentals of After Effects and how to realize your motion design ideas. This is one of the best investments you can make if you are interested in learning how to prototype motion and effects in user interfaces.”

Prasant Sivadasan

My Journey…

Hi, my name is Issara Willenskomer and I’m an award-winning designer and one of the industry’s leading UX motion experts.

But I started off, just like a lot of designers, working on app and website projects. I had zero motion experience. I really enjoyed having full ownership over my projects, because doing great work was important to me.

The first time I became aware of the power of motion in product design was when I was doing the design work on a next generation shopping collaboration between Microsoft and Target.

I was working on the static designs and had an idea of how to transition between the screens.

Because I didn’t know how to animate, we ended up hiring a motion expert. I remember handing off my design assets to him and not really knowing what to expect.

Several days later he presented his work and my jaw hit the floor.

I jumped from design into the world of motion graphics. I started at the bottom and had top animators teach me on the job working on high end video projects for clients like MTV, Fanta, HBO, Xbox, Baskin Robbins, and more. I immediately began animating UI, because I could see the power it had.

Keep in mind, I had almost NO animation experience. I never went to school for this.

Obsession precedes innovation…

As one of the few UX designers/animators in the industry (this was a few years ago) I began to get more work.

Some of those clients included Facebook, Twitter, HBO, Target, Microsoft, XBox, Motorola, TMobile, Nordstrom, Philips, AT&T, and more.

In all these projects, there was this agreement that motion was ‘cool’.

Over the course of several years, I must have watched thousands of UI animations on places like Dribble, Pinterest, Behance, and on real world apps on my phone. I obsessively interacted with the same screen, looping things over and over, trying to see what it was doing to my mind.

Then one day... I broke through...

On all my projects I would ask the Product Managers what they felt the value of motion was. Nobody could answer, except that they thought it was cool.

But I knew there was more, I just wasn't able to see it.

 

I knew I had gold in my hands and had to share it with the world.

So I spent another 6 months researching further and finally published a landmark essay on Usability and Motion.

This essay went viral and is up to 700,000+ views!

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.

These companies include Dropbox, Slack, Oracle, Salesforce, Airbnb, Kayak, Capital One and more.

Conquered my challenges...

If you’re like most of us, your mind is probably going at a thousand miles an hour, coming up with a million reasons which you can’t reach the same level of success. I learned this was the #1 most common experience for designers.

It’s easy to understand why I felt overwhelmed, the multiplicity of layers and timelines was crippling. The obstacles didn’t stop there as my mind would come up with more reasons to give up. But I was determined and came up with my own methods to crush those barriers and reach my goal.

 

Challenge 1: If I had hundreds of layers, this was hundreds of timelines I had to mentally navigate. It was hopeless. So I developed my own system and framework for ‘grouping’ layers so that I could manage my overwhelm.

 

Challenge 2: Another roadblock was that the interface was too complex. It’s hard for anyone not to be intimidated the first time they open After Effects. So I came up with the solution of creating custom workspaces.

 

Challenge 3: Still another challenge I faced was not knowing how to vet and qualify my motion ideas. I solved this problem with my motion and usability framework.

 

Challenge 4: One last challenge I’ll mention here is that I had NO good systems and frameworks for producing high quality work super fast. I invented my own systems and frameworks that I used on all my professional projects and that you'll get in the course.

The #1 Tool of Choice

When it came down to choosing the right tool to deliver these results, I noticed that nearly all the UX Designers who did amazing motion work used After Effects.

Now, granted, this was a few years ago, but guess what? Not much has changed.

Even though you can’t deliver interactive prototypes... 

After Effects remains the 'best in class' tool for high fidelity animation work.

I also knew that in order for me to get results, I would have to deliver consistent results AND be able to work quickly.

The repetitive nature of UX and product design is so vastly different than the motion graphics world. In the motion graphics world, you only have to worry about it looking good. In the UX product world, you have to be able to work quickly, iterate quickly, and build in a way that makes sense to engineers.

Because nobody was teaching this stuff, I had to develop my own workflows and seek out mentors.

Fortunately, I was able to meet some amazing mentors like friend Eric who helped design motion standards for Microsoft, and Matt, who helped develop motion for both Apple and Google.

From these guys I was able to figure out the perfect easing and duration numbers to have my motion prototypes looking perfect every time.

Remember, I'm not a classically trained animator. I'm a designer who learned to animate my work, not animate fancy cartoon characters.

You and I just need to be able to...

...take your UX product design files and turn them into jaw-dropping animations.

Putting all million pieces of the puzzle together in a simple, clear, step-by-step process became my superpower.

 

I mastered processes that I’ve packaged up into this master certification course for…

Making any design portfolio stand out among the crowd of competition for any job or project you pursue

Effectively communicating design ideas to clients, team members, stakeholders and engineers

Handing off quality assets to engineers, developers and other stakeholders

Attracting endless top-notch clients at higher fees

Because of my philosophy of using motion to have a strong portfolio, I was able to win pitches and work on UI motion projects for clients including...

Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Nordstrom, HBO, Target, Hanes, AT&T, T-Mobile, Philips, MTV, UNAIDS, and many more!

Being able to design AND animate proved an unfair advantage

Seriously, I remember cases where I was competing literally against hundreds of designers (on highly competitive open to public pitching) and consistently winning the project. It was almost scary.

Creating Usability with Motion Course

Proven methodology in project-based tools for ideating, analyzing, presenting and selling motion and usability concepts

Before I go on to share more about this course, you may be wondering…

“Why do I need this course?!?”

That’s a good question, so let me answer that here.

You see, when doing motion and using your After Effects skills, typically the focus is on the end deliverable but the process of generating ideas, presenting your ideas, and deconstructing actual mental models from the animation is just as critical.

This is even true to high-level motion experts working in multi-million dollar projects.

This course will give you the skills to work in the context of UX and integrate with UX Teams. When you are on a UX Team you have to be hyper-responsive to the endless barrage of feedback and doing many iterations is very important.

The reason is because it’s the culture of UX to identify every single possibility for improvement and to perfect the work. Until you enter a UX Project, this isn’t obvious.

But due to this culture and encouragement for feedback you MUST KNOW handle this so you don’t spend countless hours doing maddening rework from scratch.

Not working in the right way will cause deep and constant stress, anxiety, states of perpetual upset and high-alert. Plus, it can block you from promotions.

Remember, I’ve coached multiple UX Designers in this exact course, live, in-person, workshops...

...and in the offices of Airbnb, Slack, Dropbox, frog, Artefact, Kayak, Lutron, MindBody, Oracle, Salesforce, N3TWORK, King (they make Candy Crush), Capital One, and more. 

The way I showed them and will show you in this course to work will drastically decrease the amount of work, time and effort it takes to implement these new versions and iterations.

Even more, this method has resulted in massive breakthroughs for designers, including big promotions, because they embraced what I teach in the Motion and Usability Course!

With the CREATING USABILITY WITH MOTION COURSE...

You’ll walk away with a deep understanding of and language for how motion not only makes the user experience more delightful but is fundamental to a seamless product experience by solving usability problems.

Through a combination of video lectures, paper prototyping, and presentation exercises, you’ll dive deep into the methodology of motion innovation and analysis to develop a powerful context for understanding and communicating the value of motion, including how to use motion to solve design challenges, minimize the impact of context switching, and manage cognitive load. I will also teach you tactics to sell ROI-based motion ideas to stakeholders and team members.

Hands-on motion sketching and presentation exercises are designed to foster a shared linguistic framework while participants generate motion-based solutions to common UX challenges.

This course will make your skills and resume highly appealing to businesses, as it will give you the necessary know-how to deliver outcomes businesses actually care about. I know because I regularly get hired to teach this exact course to the teams of the best companies from Silicon Valley.
