Learn how to craft animations that make people feel something. It's for those that like my style of animations and/or anyone aspiring to improve their skills. This course contains everything I know about motion on the web. You'll learn how to build components like these two below, and more.

Sonner

An opinionated toast component for React that people love.

Vaul

A drawer component for React, made to bring the native feel to the web.

Emil consistently creates the highest quality animations on the web. His course is indispensable for anyone looking to craft world-class interfaces.

01 — Fundamentals

Split into 3 parts: making it feel right, how I use framer motion, good vs great animations. I’ll give you some resources that I use when working with motion, a blueprint of sorts. Keep in mind that the parts are not finalized yet and might change.

02 — Walkthroughs

You’ll get to see how I create animations from scratch, including the reasons behind my decisions. I’ll show you the tricks I use, and how I tackle the challenges I face. Source code will be included, and more walkthroughs will be added over time.

Family's drawer

We'll build a drawer for mobile devices used in the Family's iOS app.

Dynamic Island

The main focus here will be on easing and the smoothness of the animation.

Author

I’m Emil, a design engineer working at Vercel, and creator of two open source libraries called Sonner and Vaul. I see animations on the web as a form of art, and care deeply about how they look, feel, and behave. I want people to have a moment of delight when they use the things I create.

This course is really good. The pace, production quality, the way Emil explains things. Highly recommended.
