I highly recommend Ali to anyone looking for a talented and educated designer. Motion drives conversions."
"I had the pleasure of working with Ali on a zero to one motion design system for an iOS/Android app. For a product focused on immersive sound and imagery for relaxation, it was crucial that transitional elements were seamless. Ali’s approach was grounded in function while being contextually relevant and improving the overall user experience of the product. He took on a mentoring role for the team as well, working closely with engineering throughout implementation to ensure the final production version was aligned to specifications. I’d recommend Ali not only as an accelerator for high priority design needs, but also for his tremendous capacity to up-skill individuals and teams."
"Ali Said is an amazing mentor and UX Motion Design instructor. With his help, I secured a 6 figure salary in under a year and improved my UI design skills significantly.

About me

leverage design.

In my decade-long career, I have developed a keen understanding of how design influences user experience. Working in Silicon Valley, I contributed to design systems for Google, LinkedIn, Intuit, and BMW, focusing on visual and motion design. My role involved leading design teams and advocating for design's impact on usability.

My portfolio includes work on iOS, Android, wearable technology, in-vehicle interfaces, VUIs, and mixed reality for surgical robotics. Currently, I collaborate with companies and startups, enhancing their product experiences by applying my skills in visual and motion design to improve user navigation and boost product engagement and retention.

I root my design decision-making in research findings like the aesthetic-usability effect, which reveals that users perceive attractive products as more usable. This phenomenon, studied by Masaaki Kurosu and Kaori Kashimura, highlights that aesthetic appeal can mask minor usability issues.

In my design approach, I incorporate research that demonstrates the impact of motion design on improving user experience. Studies show that motion design in UI enhances usability and user engagement by providing clear visual feedback, reducing cognitive load, and positively influencing users' emotional responses. This aligns with findings that well-executed animations improve task performance and overall satisfaction, forming a core part of my strategy in creating effective and engaging digital interfaces.

If you're looking to enhance your digital experience with effective design, consider my services. Contact me to discuss how we can make your digital interface more engaging and user-friendly.

My design philosophy is to leverage visual and motion design to achieve user and business goals. Check out my latest projects or some of my talks and as always, please feel free to reach out.
I love to create products that have impact. I've worked on mobile (Android, iOS), desktop, wearable, enterprise, and in-vehicle user experiences for some of the world's biggest brand names. My focuses are primarily UX research, accessibility, visual/motion design, and design systems initiatives.

What is the UX Motion Design process?
As a UX motion designer, my process involves auditing applications to identify opportunities for functional motion design improvements. Once I've identified these areas, I provide libraries and corresponding timing specifications to ensure a streamlined implementation.

Throughout my career, I've worked on numerous design teams and have become adept at integrating seamlessly into any team structure or pipeline. This has allowed me to collaborate effectively with engineers to ensure that the final product meets both the design and functional requirements of the project.

My goal as a UX motion designer is to create engaging and intuitive experiences for users through the use of thoughtful and purposeful motion design. By leveraging my expertise and experience, I strive to provide a holistic approach to design that considers both the user experience and technical feasibility.
How does Functional Motion improve UX?
UX motion design is a critical element in creating a user-friendly and engaging digital product. It can improve the user experience in several ways. Firstly, it can guide users by providing visual cues that direct their attention to critical elements on the screen. For instance, motion can be used to draw attention to a call-to-action button or a menu item, which can help users navigate and interact with the product more efficiently. This can improve the overall usability and effectiveness of the product.

Secondly, motion design can make the user experience more delightful and engaging. By incorporating delightful and surprising animations, designers can create an emotional connection with the user, leading to higher user satisfaction and loyalty. This can also help differentiate the product from its competitors, which can be essential in today's crowded digital marketplaces.

Overall, UX motion design plays a crucial role in creating a superior user experience. By using motion design thoughtfully and purposefully, designers can improve the product's usability, engagement, and overall effectiveness. Ultimately, this can lead to greater user satisfaction and loyalty, which can translate to better business outcomes for the organization.

UX MOTION RESEARCH 
Research from Google and Nielsen Norman Group show that motion design drastically improves user experience. In short, motion optimizes user experience by reducing cognition, hiding latency, guiding user attention, confirming gesture, and streamlining navigation in the UI. UX Motion is critical.
