The site curates hundreds of animated interface mockups from around the web. It also runs its own weekly newsletter showcasing the top five UI animations for the past week. These animations come from all over the web and they’re often submitted by skilled designers.

In our modern design era, it’s increasingly common for traditional UI designers to adopt UX skills. This is reason enough to study animations used on interface elements.

With UI Movement, you can sort by hundreds of tags such as these ones:

  • Button
  • Chat
  • Menu
  • Portfolio
  • Payments

You’ll be able to sort by page type, element type, or physical action. For example, the pull-to-refresh tag is incredibly valuable for mobile UX designers.

The invisible line between UI and UX work has recently blurred further and it’s one of the main reasons why designers need to pick up animation techniques.

Thankfully, UI Movement is full of great examples and you can even save your favorites by signing up for the site. It’s totally free and it allows you to vote on animations & submit your own.

Whether you’re looking for mockup ideas or animations to clone in CSS, you’ll find a lot of ideas on this site. It’s primarily made for mobile app designers but there is plenty of web design inspiration to go around.

You can also sign up for the weekly newsletter if you want to keep up with UI Movement without constantly checking the site.
