In the interview, Ailshie said that simple animations can go a long way. “While designing for function is of the utmost importance, small design choices can have a large impact in creating a memorable user experience,”  he said. “Animated transitions between elements and other animated UI behaviors such as parallax scrolling can increase user engagement in your app or website.

When paired with a minimalist or flat interface, these animation can provide some visual interest that may be absent in the layout.”
