Happy Tuesday! I’ve got something a little different for you this week based on a convo Spence and I had a few weeks ago. Behind the scenes, Spence has been redesigning our website and we always bounce ideas off one another for the different pages. When it came to our contact page, we were thinking of adding a surprise animation once someone hits ‘send’, so I put together this quick idea and we both loved it. It’ll be a little while before the design is live (since Spence is doing everything from design to code), but I’m already excited for this little plane to take flight on the page.

From this beginner friendly tutorial, you’ll learn how to:
✨ Create a foreground animation element
✨ Create and animate a flying paper airplane
✨ Add a dashed line ‘flight path’ that also animates in
✨ Adjust animation settings + frame rate
✨ Export for social media
