In this After Effects motion graphic tutorial we are going to be taking a look at how to create this microinteraction for a social media icon or button. This social media icons animation can be used on your website, or other social media outlet. Animated icons are always a great source for microinteractions as animated minimal logos always provide a fun baseline to practice with beginner techniques.
“Microinteractions are contained product moments that revolve around a single use case—they have one main task. Every time you change a setting, sync your data or devices, set an alarm, pick a password, log in, set a status message, or favorite or “like” something, you are engaging with a microinteraction. They are everywhere: in the devices we carry, the appliances in our house, the apps on our phones and desktops, even embedded in the environments we live and work in. Most appliances and some apps are built entirely around one microinteraction.” – Dan Saffer
